was founded and for which the citizens of the 
United States have often fought; and 

Whereas, it is fitting that we who are privileged 
to be citizens of this nation should pay special hon- 
ors to our national colors and use the occasion to 
renew our pledge of loyalty to the ideals for which 
our Flag stands; and 

Whereas, June 14 has been decreed by Congress 
to be the day upon which those special honors shall 
be paid to the Flag annually. 

Now, Therefore, I do hereby proclaim Tuesday, 
June 14, 1938, to be flag day in Chicago, and I call 
upon all of our citizens to display the national colors 
between sunrise and sunset of that day at their 
homes and places of business, as well as at public 
institutions, and I further urge them to participate, 
wherever possible, in any exercises which have 
been arranged to commemorate the national em- 
blem which we all hold so dear. 

Signed at Chicago, Illinois, this third day of June, 
A. D., 1938.

DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 



Proposed Compromise Settlement of a Judgment 
Rendered against Paul Braus. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was 
referred to the Committee on Finance: 



Department of Law,[ 
Chicago, May 31, 1938.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Re: Clara Pederson and the City of Chicago vs. 
Paul Braus, Superior Court 35-S- 11435. 

Gentlemen — Clara Pederson, a field nurse in the 
Department of Health was injured in the course of 
her employment on February 5, 1935. She was 
struck by an automobile negligently driven by one 
Paul Braus, while standing on a safety island wait- 
ing for a street car. The injuries sustained caused 
a permanent loss of 65% of the use of left arm and 
25% loss of use of left leg. 

Miss Pederson filed a petition with the Industrial 
Commission and was awarded the sum of $3,750 
as compensation and $537.50 as medical expense. 
The City of Chicago is now paying under this 
award. She also filed a common law action against 
the said Paul Braus in the Superior Court No. 35- 
S-11435, for personal injuries sustained and se- 
cured a judgment by default. The City intervened 
and an order was entered granting the city the sum 
of $4,977.50 in distribution of the proceeds of this 
judgment. 

Our investigation indicated the defendant was 
without means to pay this judgment, but was in- 
sured under a policy with the American Automo- 
bile Insurance Co. The proof would show that he 
failed to deliver the summons served on him in 
this common law action to the insurance company 
as provided by the terms of the policy; and that 
fact, if proven, would be a defense to any action 
brought under the policy. This defense applies not 
only to the insured, but also to a judgment creditor 
recovering judgment against the insured. 

Rushing v. The Commercial Casualty Co., 167 
N. E. 450. 

In view of the foregoing, negotiations were had 
with the American Automobile Insurance Co., the 
insurer of the defendant, and the City of Chicago 
was offered the sum of $1,000 in consideration of 
the waiver of its claim for subrogation and the re- 
leasing of its interest acquired in the judgment 
secured in the Superior Court. The Corporation 
Counsel upon the recommendation of Mr. A. M. 
Smietanka, head of the Personal Injury Division, 
has approved the acceptance of this sum. We 
therefore, respectfully request the approval of your 
honorable body, together with your authority to 
the Comptroller of the City of Chicago to execute 
the necessary release to the said American Auto- 
mobile Insurance Company. 



Respectfully submitted.

tion, submitted by the Commissioner of Public Works:

Bureau of Sewers, [^ 

Chicago, May 24, 1938.J 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith a proposed or- 
dinance to grant permission to the County of Cook 
to improve (pave) the part of the State- Aid Road 
Extension in the extension south of S. Colfax ave- 
nue from E. 95th street to a connection with S. Tor- 
rence avenue at E. 97th street, with the recommend- 
ation that the ordinance be passed. 

The proposed improvement in S. Colfax avenue 
extended is to consist of the construction of a 42- 



foot pavement, together with curbs, a drainage sys- 
tem and returns at the street intersections, in ac- 
cordance with a plan herewith attached. It will be 
noted that the plan involves the disconnection of 
the existing roadway in S. Torrence avenue from 
the roadway in E. 95th street and from the roadway 
in S. Torrence avenue south of E. 97th street and 
the construction of a connecting roadway in E. 96th 
street from the existing roadway in S. Torrence 
avenue to the proposed roadway in S. Colfax avenue 
extended. 

These proposed disconnections are to avoid the 
traffic hazards that would otherwise be set up at 
the intersection of E. 95th street and S. Torrence 
avenue and at the intersection of E. 97th street and 
S. Torrence avenue. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) O. E. Hewitt,

Designation of the Period June 20-26, 1938 as "Anti- 
Litter Week in Chicago". 

The City Clerk presented the following proclama- 
tion of Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, which 
was ordered published and placed on file: 

A Proclamation 

Whereas, our city may point with pride to its ex- 
cellent public and private school and other educa- 
tional buildings, its numerous stately churches, and 
its many world renowned institutions, museums 
and other public buildings of commanding archi- 
tecture, the majority of which are surrounded with 
beautifully embellished grounds, and 

Whereas, the city of Chicago is richly endowed 
with beautiful parks, splendid boulevards, fine 
bathing beaches, and a lake front development sec- 
ond to none in the world, and 

Whereas, such places and structures include 
some of the major attractions and places of inter- 
est for out-of-town visitors, and comprise the city's 
foremost assets because of their influence upon the 
health, spiritual welfare, culture and enjoyment of 
our citizens, and 

Whereas, the neat and orderly appearance of 
such places and structures is of the utmost impor- 
tance in upholding the civic pride of our citizens, 
and 

Whereas, thoughtless casting of waste paper and 
other forms of litter upon public grounds, careless 
injury to trees, shrubs, lawns or flowers and mis- 
chievous damage done to public buildings and 
structures destroy their beauty and reduce the 
benefits they afford; 

Now, therefore, I hereby proclaim the week of 
June 20-26, inclusive, 1938, as Anti-Litter Week 
IN Chicago and I urge all of our citizens to join in 
a concerted effort to avoid all careless littering of 
public grounds and damage to public buildings, 
trees and all other growing plants. Also, to empha- 
size the need of conserving and keeping beautiful 
all public places and public properties to the end

Law Department,!^ 
Chicago, June 8, 1938.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Early this year the law depart- 
ment advised your Honorable Body that a study of 
the Revised Chicago Code of 1931 clearly indicated 
the necessity of an immediate revision. As of De- 
cember 31, 1937 at least 1,227 changes had been 
made by amendment to the printed code. Also, a 
number of amendments was necessitated by reason 
of the inadvertent omission from the 1931 compila- 
tion of many ordinances then in force and effect, 
and the inclusion through error of certain ordi- 
nances that had been repealed prior thereto. 

In addition to such changes as have already been 
made therein which must be incorporated in the 
contemplated revision, the present code is replete 
with scattered provisions relating to the same sub- 
ject matter which should properly be brought to- 
gether under one head; ordinances which have 
been declared invalid by courts of competent juris- 
diction; ordinances which impose upon depart- 
ments a technique of operation that has been out- 
moded for more than a generation and which 
should be either omitted or amended to conform 
to present day standards; sections containing over- 
lapping or inconsistent provisions; and a vast 
amount of unnecessary repetition. 

On May 11, 1938 (C.J. p. 5953) an order was 
passed by your Honorable Body directing the Cor- 
poration Counsel "to prepare and submit to the 
City Council for consideration an ordinance to 
amend and revise the Revised Chicago Code of 1931 
and all general ordinances of the city of Chicago, 
and to compile and codify all provisions thereof as 
amended and revised. * * * " 

With the aim of making this revision, when 
passed by your Honorable Body, the most modern 
code possible, one that befits the second largest city 
of the nation, one that is in line with the progres- 
sive policy of both the Mayor and the City Council 
to keep Chicago in the foreground as an outstand- 
ing municipality, the law department has been en- 
gaged in exhaustive investigation and study for the 
past year and a half. 

Certain substantive changes will, of course, be 
necessary. Requests for such changes which will 
bring the publication into line with modern meth- 
ods and practices have been urged by department 
heads of practically every city department. In each 



June 10, 1938 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



6161 



case, the law department has studied the request 
with a view not only to determining the legality 
thereof but also to presenting it to your Honorable 
Body in ordinance form. 

In order to expedite the work of revision, the law 
department believes it desirable at this time to be- 
gin sending to you certain of those changes which 
we have drafted in proper form in order that they 
may be acted upon prior to submission of the final 
revision. In this way the City Council, upon whicli 
rests entirely the question of substantive changes 
in the ordinances, will be actively participating in 
the work of revision as that work progresses, and 
the final product will be in fact a true expression 
of the will of the Council. 

From time to time we will submit additional 
groups of these amendatory ordinances. The first 
group accompanies this letter and is made up of the 
following: 

(1) Ordinance transferring jurisdiction of sewer 
cleaners from the department of healtli to 
the department of public works. 

(2) Ordinance repealing certain sections of the 
code which have been superseded by the Re- 
vised Uniform Traffic Code. 

(3) Ordinance coordinating and clarifying scat- 
tered provisions relating to employees' and 
officers' fidelity bonds. 

(4) Ordinance repealing two antiquated sec- 
tions dealing with horses and parades on 
bridges. 

(5) Ordinance repealing four antiquated sec- 
tions dealing with wooden sidewalks, cab- 
bage fields, attaching mail boxes to lamp 
posts, the harbor and subway commission. 

In each instance an explanatory statement is at- 
tached to the ordinance, which statement sets forth 
such pertinent facts as the department in which the 
suggested changes originated, the reasons given by 
the department for the desired changes, and a short 
history for the convenience of your Honorable 
body. 

The exact organization and provisions of the va- 
rious chapters of the new code will depend in large 
measure upon action taken by the council with re- 
gard to these recommendations and others that will 
be presented later. In order that we may speedily 
proceed w^ith the preparation of the revised code 
for your consideration, the department respectfully 
requests your early consideration of all the depart- 
mental recommendations. 



Respectfully submitted, 



(Signed) 



Barnet Hodes, 
Corporation Counsel.

The following is the report as submitted: 

The Committee on Traffic and Public Safety rec-

intersection for installation of vehicle-actuated sig- 



6180 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO

nals is $5,000.00; that the cost of installed time- 
fixed signals per intersection is $2,100.00; that the 
saving in time to motorists by traffic-actuated sig- 
nals compensates for the additional cost. 

There are at present twenty-seven intersections 
equipped with vehicle -actuated signals and five 
hundred ninety-five intersections equipped with 
time-fixed signals. Vehicle-actuated signals are 
used only at isolated intersections where progres- 
sive control is not contemplated and is required by 
the State Highway Department on extensions of 
State highways.

Direction for Submission of a Report Concerning 

Alleged Unfair Business Practices in the Sale 

of Beer in Glasses or Steins. 



FOURTEENTH WARD. 



Whereas, It has been charged that some taverns 
in Chicago are engaged in unfair business practices 
when they advertise to their customers the large 
quantity of beer which they serve in a glass or 
stein; and 

Whereas, It is ciiarged that taverns which sell 
glasses or steins of beer holding greater quantities 
than those of their competitors at the same price, 
can do so because of the fact that such glasses or 
steins of beer are loaded with an unusual amount 
of foam^ or "collar"; and 

Whereas, These unfair trade practices carried 
on by some taverns in Chicago are wrongful in that 
they hurt the business of their competitors who 
offer to their customers a glass or stein of beer 
holding an honest measure; and 

Whereas, Such wrongful trade practices of tav- 
erns in overloading glasses and steins of beer with 
foam or "collar" likewise deprive their customers 
of the quantity of beer to which they ar-e entitled 
in legal liquid measure; therefore be it 

Ordered, That the Department of Weights and 
Measures be and it is hereby directed to make an 
investigation of the practices of those taverns which 
are selling beer to their customers by the stein or 
glass, or in any other manner requiring honest 
legal weight and measure according to the ordi- 
nances of the City of Chicago; and be it further 

Ordered, That the Department of Weights and 
Measures be and it is hereby directed to inform 
this Council whether the amount of foam or 
"collar" on a glass or stein of draft beer is part of 
the legal weight or liquid measure of such beer; 
and be it further 

Ordered, That the Department of Weights and 
Measures be and it is hereby directed to report to 
this Council such recommendations and proposed 
ordinances as will guarantee to the consumer of 
beer in the taverns of this city honest lawful weight 
and measure for each glass or stein of beer which 
he may purchase and to which they are legally en- 
titled under the laws and ordinances, as well as 
protecting the tavern keeper against unfair trade 
and business practices of competitors.

Proposed Direction to Give Consideration to the 

Legal and Physical Aspects of the Chicago 

Traction Problem, Etc. 

Alderman Arvey presented the following resolu- 
tion, which was ordered published and referred to 
the Committee on Local Transportation: 

Whereas, The City of Chicago from time to time 
has given its consent to the maintenance and opera- 
tion of the street railway systems of Chicago Rail- 
ways Company, Chicago City Railway Company. 
Calumet and South Chicago Railway Company and 
The Southern Street Railway Company, in streets 
and public places in the City of Chicago where the 
same are now being operated; this consent having 
been given by ordinances passed from time to time 
by the City Council and commonly designated day- 
to-day ordinances; and 

Whereas, This practice has continued from the 
time of the expiration of the so-called contract 
ordinances of 1907 which granted permission to the 
above-named companies to maintain and operate 
said street railway system, and 

Whereas, By virtue of said ordinances the said 
companies through receivers, have been operating 
the above-named railway system since the expira- 
tion date of the contract ordinances of 1907 con- 
tinuously to this date and from and after the early 
part of 1930 have paid no compensation to the 
City of Chicago as provided for in said contract 
ordinances of 1907, and 

Whereas, Said companies have no right to occupy 
the streets of Chicago in the absence of the passage 
by the City Council of so-called day-to-day ordi- 
nances from time to time, and 

Whereas, Certain of the constituent companies 
of the Chicago Rapid Transit Lines are now main- 
taining and operating elevated lines in and upon 
the streets of Cliicago, the franchises for which 
have expired, and 



Whereas, The Chicago Motor Coach Company is 
operating passenger buses over the streets of Chi- 
cago without any power and authority whatever 
having been granted therefor by the City Council, 
and 

Whereas, By virtue of a statute passed by the 
General Assembly in 1935, known as the Home 
Rule Act, the City Council is granted the authority 
to notify all persons, firms or corporations using its 
streets for transportation purposes to vacate the 
same in instances where the ordinances permitting 
operation and maintenance of such transportation 
on the streets have expired or where no ordinances 
are in existence granting permission and authority 
for the maintenance of such local transportation, 
and 

Whereas, It is highly desirable that the City 
Council be prepared, in the event no further day- 
to-day ordinance is passed by the Council, to take 
such legal steps as are required by statute to give 
proper and sufficient notice to the companies to 
vacate the streets of Chicago and, further, if neces- 
sary, to grant to the companies the right to occupy 
the streets of Chicago upon the payment of ade- 
quate compensation for their use, pending negotia- 
tions for franchise ordinances of a permanent 
nature; 

Now, Therefore, Be it Resolved, That the Com- 
mittee on Local Transportation be and it is hereby 
directed to give immediate consideration to the 
legal and physical aspects of the traction problem 
as made necessary by present conditions and to 
have ready for submission to the City Council such 
ordinance or ordinances as are or may be required 
to protect the City's position in its right to the 
streets of Chicago and to obtain adequate compen- 
sation for their use and occupancy and which will 
give proper and sufficient legal notice to constit- 
uent companies of the Chicago Surface Lines and 
such of the constituent companies of the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Lines, the franchises of which have 
expired, and the Chicago Motor Coach Company, 
to vacate the streets of Chicago and to cease and 
desist from the operation of local transportation 
facilities thereon except as contained in any per- 
mits thereupon and thereafter issued by the City of 
Chicago.

E>Jrect:on for Preparation of an Ordinance Empower-

Signboards Which Constitute a Hazard 
to Traffic. 

Alderman Crowe presented the following resolu- 
tion: 

Whereas, The tremendous increase in automo- 
bile accidents and deaths from such accidents is a 
constant subject of investigation and of efforts to 
reduce such accidents and deaths; and 

Whereas, Many traffic safety organizations have 
conducted innumerable surveys of the causes of 
such accidents, which are many and varied; and 

Whereas, Many of these surveys have shown that 
a great proportion of the accidents are due to in- 
ability of drivers to see oncoming cars because of 
obstructions of vision, artificial and otherwise; and 

Whereas, A recent survey has shown that bill- 
boards have been erected at points where the view 
of drivers is obscured, such as on curves and at 
right-angled turns, and at the tops of hills; and 

Whereas, It has been demonstrated that such 
signs may not be removed for any esthetic reason, 
that method having been tried; therefore be it 

Resolved, That the corporation counsel be and 
hereby is instructed to prepare an ordinance that 
will lodge in some proper city official the authority 
to declare when such a sign is a real hazard to 
traffic, and that when he is convinced it is a genu- 
ine traffic hazard, he may order it down as a mat- 
ter of public safety, regardless of any contract en- 
tered into with the owner of the property upon 
which the sign has been erected.

nance for setbacks from side lot lines. 

g) Rectangular Open Lot Line Courts. The niin- 
imum horizontal dimension of a rectangular open 
lot line court, measured at a right angle to the lot 
line shall be four (4) feet for a distance of fifty 
(50) feet measured from the closed end of the 
court. For the next succeeding fifty (50) feet, or 
fraction thereof, the minimum dimension shall be 
five (5) feet and for each succeeding fifty (50) 
feet or fraction thereof, thereafter, said minimum 
dimension shall be increased one (1) foot. Begin- 
ning at a height of ten (10) feet above the bottom 
of an open lot line court, the required horizontal 
dimension or dimensions, measured at a right angle 
to the lot line shall be increased at the rate of 
one (1) foot for each ten (10) feet of additional 
height, until a total horizontal court dimension of 



June 10, 1938

fifteen (15) feet is attained. Above such point, 
the court may be carried up without further in- 
crease in said court dimension, except as otherwise 
required by the Chicago Zoning Ordinance. 

h) Rectangular Outer Courts. The minimum, 
horizontal dimension of a rectangular outer court, 
measured parallel to the open side of such court, 
shall be eight (8) feet for a distance of fifty (50) 
feet, measured from the inner, or closed end, of 
the court. For the next succeeding fifty (50) feet 
or fraction thereof, the minimum dimension shall 
be ten (10) feet and for each succeeding fifty (50) 
feet or fraction thereof, thereafter, said minimum 
dimension shall be increased two (2) feet. Begin- 
ning at a height of ten (10) feet above the bottom 
of an outer court, the required horizontal dimension 
or dimensions, measured parallel to the open side 
of the court shall be increased at the rate of two 
(2) feet for each ten (10) feet of additional height 
until a total horizontal court dimension of thirty 
(30) feet is attained. Above such point, the court 
may be carried up without further increase in said 
court dimension, except as otherwise required by 
the Chicago Zoning Ordinance. The increase in 
horizontal dimensions, required by this paragraph, 
may be obtained by stepping bade either or both of 
the side walls. 

i) Rectangular Closed Lot Line Courts. The 
minimum horizontal dimension of a rectangular 
closed lot line court, measured at a right angle to 
the lot line, shall be five (5) feet. Beginning at a 
height of ten (10) feet above the bottom of the 
court, the required horizontal dimension, measured 
at right angle to the lot line, shall be increased at 
the rate of one (1) foot for each ten (10) feet of 
additional height, until a total horizontal court di- 
mension of fifteen (15) feet is attained. Above such 
point, the court may be carried up without further 
increase in said court dimension, except as other- 
wise required by the Chicago Zoning Ordinance. 
The minimum horizontal dimension of a rectangu- 
lar closed lot line court, measured parallel to the 
lot line at any height, shall be not less than twice 
the required minimum dimension measured at a 
right angle to the lot line at the same height. The 
increase in horizontal dimension parallel to the lot 
line may be obtained by stepping back either, or 
both, of the end walls. The minimum area of a 
rectangular closed lot line court, at any height, 
shall be determined from Table 802.02 i). For any 
height not given directly in the table, said minimum 
area shall be determined by interpolation between 
the two (2) nearest heights.

j) Rectangular Inner Courts. The minimum di- 
mension of a rectangular inner court shall be ten 
(10) feet. Beginning at a height of ten (10) feet 
above the bottom of the court, said minimum di- 
mension shall be increased at the rate of two (2) 
feet for each ten (10) feet of additional height, until 
a total dimension of thirty (30) feet is attained. 
Above such point, the court may be carried up 
without further increase in any court dimension; 
provided however, that the areas required by Table 
802.02 j) are maintained. The increase in hori- 
zontal dimensions required by this paragraph may 
be obtained by stepping back either or both of the 
walls which face each other across the court. The 
minimum area of a rectangular inner court at any 
height shall be determined from Table 802.02 j). 
For any height not given directly in the table, said 
minimum area shall be determined by interpolation

a) General. Every dwelling above the first story 
shall be provided with an exit, or exits, as set forth 
in the following paragraph b). No part of any 
such exit shall be through another dwelling. 

b) Number of Exits. Each dwelling unit con- 
taining more than four (4) habitable rooms shall 



have two (2) separate means of exit to a public 
corridor. Each dwelling unit shall have one (1) 
exit doorway so located that it may be reached from 
any habitable room in the dwelling unit without 
passing through more than one ( 1 ) other habitable 
room; provided however, that any dwelling unit 
with a single means of exit to a public corridor shall 
be in a building of ordinary, heavy timber, semi- 
fireproof or fireproof construction. 

c) Exit Connections. Every required exit from 
a dwelling above the first story shall lead either 
directly to two (2) vertical means of exit or into a 
public corridor lobby or other space leading to two 
(2) vertical means of exit. Where two (2) means 
of exit are required, each exit from the dwelling 
shall be from different rooms, or other spaces, but 
both such exits may open into the same public 
corridor, lobby or other space, if such space is 
provided with two (2) separate vertical means of 
exit, meeting the requirements of Section 806.03. 
In paragraph b) of this Section, where a single 
doorway is permitted as the only means of exit 
from a dwelling above the main exit level, such 
doorway shall open into a public corridor, lobby 
or other space, from which there are two (2) sepa- 
rate vertical means of exit meeting the require- 
ments of Section 806.03.

graph a) of this section, shall be so located that 
no exit door from any dwelling above the main 
exit level shall be distant more than thirty (30) 
feet, in a building of wood frame construction, or 
more than fifty (50) feet in a building of ordinary 
or heavy timber construction, except as herein- 
after provided, or more than one hundred (100) 
feet in a building of semi-fireproof or fireproof 
construction from a doorway into the inclosure of 
such a means of exit or from a doorway or window 
opening to a fire escape or to an outside stairway. 
Such distance shall be measured as a horizontal 
radius from the center of said doorway, or window 
opening. In any multiple dwelling, of the corridor 
type, there shall be a vertical means of exit within 
twenty-five (25) feet of every end of a corridor, 
if the building is of ordinary or heavy timber con- 
struction and within fifty (50) feet of every end of a 
corridor if the building is of semi-fireproof con- 
struction. Access from any dwelling to the two 
(2) required vertical means of exit may be by way 
of a single corridor and it shall be permissible to 
locate such vertical means of exit in such a manner 
that it is necessary to pass by one of them in order 
to reach the other, if both are inclosed with two (2) 
hour fire-resistive inclosure. It shall not, however, 
be permissible to pass through any portion of the 
inclosure of one ( 1 ) vertical means of exit to reach 
another vertical means of exit. 

806.04 Exits From Buildings: Every required 
vertical means of exit shall give egress directly to 
the outer air at grade, or at the main exit level of

Proclamation Concerning Independence Day. 

The City Clerk presented the following proclama- 
tion of Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, which was 
ordered published and placed on file: 

A Proclamation 

Whereas, in past years many adults and children 
have lost their lives, or suffered serious injuries, on 
or about July fourth and during the summer months 
from the use of fireworks, cap pistols and danger- 
ous toys such as rifles, sling shots and toy guns; and 

Whereas, the saddening of homes and unneces- 
sary expense can be avoided by refraining from the 
use of said dangerous devices and articles; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of the 
City of Chicago, do hereby urge all citizens to up- 
hold and aid in the enforcement of municipal or- 
dinances which prohibit the unlawful sale and use 
without permit of fireworks and also restrict the 
sale of firearms and explosives, and to make unlaw- 
ful the use of airguns, toy firearms and the like. 
I earnestly request that parents and guardians co- 
operate to the fullest extent by making sure that 
their children do not have in their possession, and 
do not use, any of the above dangerous articles — 
to the end that Chicago may enjoy a Fourth of July 
and summer that is singularly free from unneces- 
sary accidents of the above kind. 

So that the nation's independence and the heroic 
actions of our forefathers may be duly honored, I 
suggest that as many citizens as possible participate 
in community and city-wide celebrations of the 
Fourth of July. Also, I call attention to the fourth 
annual celebration of the 4th of July to be pre- 
sented by the Cook County Council of the American 
Legion in Soldier Field on the evening of July 3. 
This great event should be attended by as many of 
our people as possible.

munity, and 

Whereas, the achievements of C.Y.O. athletic 
teams, especially in the field of amateur boxing, 
have given Chicago a pre-eminent position in na- 
tional amateur athletics, and 

Whereas, the C.Y.O. draws neither religious nor

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — We are pleased to inform you of a 
decision of the Supreme Court of Illinois favorable 
to the city, filed June 15, 1938, in the case of City 
of Chicago, appellee, v. R. & X. Restaurant, Inc., 
appellant. 

The decision is important as it sustains the valid- 
ity of the city's retail food dispensers ordinance 
against the attack of a restaurant corporation on 
the ground that the ordinance was beyond the 
power of the city to enact and was otherwise in- 
valid because, as it was alleged, the prescribed li- 
cense fees were unreasonable in amount and based 
upon an improper classification, and because of a 
claimed unregulated delegation of authority to the 
President of the Board of Health in the granting 
and revoking of licenses.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



June 20, 1938 



It was contended by the restaurant corporation 
that the Supreme Court having decided in the case 
of Potson V. City of Chicago, 304 111. 222 (1922), 
that the city did not possess the power to license 
restaurants as such, the ordinance when applied 
to those in the restaurant business was invalid. The 
members of your Honorable Body may recall that 
the Potson decision has until now been a trouble- 
some one to the city's Law Department and the 
city's license enforcement officials. To have it dis- 
tinguished and declared not controlling upon the 
retail food establisments ordinance and insufficient 
to enable restaurants to escape licensing and regu- 
lation, as has been done in the decision now re- 
ported, is encouraging. To have lost the right to 
regulate restaurants by means of a licensing ordi- 
nance and suffer the loss in revenue necessary to 
defray the cost of protecting the public against un- 
sanitary establishments dispensing food would 
have been a severe blow. We are gratified by the 
court's unanimous decision recognizing the salutary 
purpose of the ordinance and upholding the City 
Council's right to enact it pursuant to its broad 
powers to regulate the sale of foods and care for 
the health of the community. 

A copy of the court's decision is forwarded here- 
w^ith. 

Very truly yours,

No. 24493 



vs. 



Appeal from Municipal 
Court of Chicago.

Appellant / 

Docket No. 24493 — Agenda 20 — February, 1938. 

The City of Chicago, Appellee, v. The R. &. X. Res- 
taurant, Inc., Appellant. 

Mr. Justice Wilson delivered the opinion of the 
court: 



This is an appeal from a judgment of the munici- 
pal court of Chicago, imposing a fine upon the R. 
& X. Restaurant, Inc., for conducting a food-dis- 
pensing establishment in Chicago without having 
applied for an and obtained a license, in violation 
of an ordinance regulating such establishments. 

The ordinance charged to have been violated is 
article 3, sections 3013 to 3017, of chapter 61 of the 
Revised Chicago Code of 1931, pp. 1145 to 1153. 
The ordinance defines food dispensers and regu- 
lates the storage, handling and sale at retail of 
foods and drinks intended for human consumption. 
Regulations are provided as to dining rooms, kit- 
chens, storerooms, pantries, refrigerators, plumb- 
ing, screens and employees ; the manner of cleaning 
dishes and eating and drinking vessels; cleaning 
and polishing silverware, kitchenware and uten- 
sils; the protection of foods from rats, mice, vermin, 
insects, flies and dust; the wearing by employees 
of suitable, clean and washable clothing; the dis- 
position of refuse and garbage and keeping recep- 
tacles therefor; the making of orange drinks and 
their protection from contamination. Regulations 
are provided for counter ice-cream freezers and 
the manufacture and handling of ice-cream. It is 
admitted that the ordinance covers the entire field 
of regulation of the business of selling to the pub- 
lic at retail foods and drinks for consumption on 
the premises. 

Counsel for defendant contend that the city has 
no power to regulate the restaurant business or 
that of food dispensers. Counsel for the city con- 
tend that the ordinance is valid under express 
powers delegated by specific provisions of the 
Cities and Villages act. 

The authority of a municipality to adopt an ordi- 
nance may be derived from a single grant or a com- 
bination of enumerated powers. {City of Rockford 
V. Hey, 366 111. 526; City of Chicago v. Arhuckle 
Bros. 344 id. 597; City of Rockford v. Nolan, 316 
id. 60.) Among the powers granted to municipali- 
ties under section 1 of article 5 of the Cities and 
Villages act, (111. Rev. Stat. 1937, pp. 347 to 354, 
are (Par. 65.3) authority "to fix the amount, terms 
and manner of issuing and revoking licenses." 
(Par. 65.40) "To license, tax, regulate, suppress 
and prohibit * * * keepers of ordinaries * * * and 
to revoke such licenses at pleasure." (Par. 65.49) 
"To regulate the sale of meats, poultry, fish, but- 
ter, cheese, lard, vegetables, and all other provi- 
sions, and to provide for place and manner of 
selling the same and to control the location there- 
of." (Par. 65.52) "To provide for and regulate the 
inspection of meats, poultry, fish, butter, cheese, 
lard, vegetables, cotton, tobacco, flour, meal and 
other provisions." (Par. 65.77) "To do all acts, 
make all regulations, which may be necessary or 
expedient for the promotion of health or the sup- 
pression of disease." (Par. 65.90) "To tax, license 
and regulate * * * ice-cream parlors, coffee 
houses." 

The most general of the foregoing provisions are 
those relating to the licensing and regulation of 
the keepers of ordinaries, the regulation and in- 
spection of food products "and all other provisions," 
and the one relating to the promotion of health and 
the suppression of disease. It is contended that the 
ordinance could not be based upon the statutory 
provision relating to licensing and regulating keep- 
ers of ordinaries, because while food dispensers in- 
clude restaurants, ordinaries are not restaurants. 
The word "ordinary" has been defined to mean a 
place of eating where the prices are settled. (Web- 



June 20, 1938 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

ster's New Internal. Diet.; 6 Words and Phrases, p. 
5027: VJerner v. Washington, 29 Fed. Cas. 705; Tal- 
bot V. Southern Seminary, 131 Va. 576.) It is not 
necessary to decide whether the words "ordinary" 
and "restaurant" have exactly the same meaning, 
but they are both places where food is dispensed. 
The ordinance here was not designed to regulate 
an occupation as such, but the places where food 
is dispensed. It is contended that the foods or pro- 
visions specified in the paragraph relating to food 
products, are those of a raw or uncooked character, 
and that by the use of the words "other provisions" 
the same character of food is intended. There is 
nothing in any of the paragraphs mentioned which 
excludes from their operation the regulation of 
cooked foods. Markets and food establishments fre- 
quently have for sale cooked meats, poultry and 
fish. There is as much likelihood of contamination 
of cooked foods as uncooked foods, if they are not 
properly safeguarded, and since they come within 
the same designation, cooked or uncooked foods 
would be subject to regulation. "All other provi- 
sions" would include cooked as well as uncooked 
articles of food. The regulation of cooked food cer- 
tainly tends to the promotion of health and assists 
in the suppression of disease. Regulations similar 
to those in the act here under consideration were 
contained in an ordinance applicable to wholesale 
food establishments, passed upon and held valid in 
City of Chicago v. Arhuckle Bros, supra. The 
Tegulations and inspection of food products and pro- 
visions immediately to be consumed in places where 
food is to be dispensed is no less important than the 
regulation and inspection of articles of food, such 
as coffee, in wholesale food establishments. If there 
is a reasonable connection between any business 
and the peril of employment therein, or to the pub- 
lic, a reasonable ground of regulation is presented. 

We have held that if a business sought to be regu- 
lated does not tend to injure the public health, 
public morals or interfere with the general welfare 
it is not a subject for the exercise of the police 
power. (Lowenthal v. City of Chicago, 313 111. 
190.) An ordinance providing for a license, with- 
out regulatory provisions of any kind is solely a 
revenue measure and not within the police power. 
(Herb Bros. v. City of Alton, 264 111. 628.) The fol- 
lowing cases illustrate the conditions which may 
call for the exercise of the police power in matters 
of regulation and license. The regulation and licens- 
' ing of meat markets has been upheld. (Kinsley v. 
City of Chicago, 124 111. 359.) The regulation of 
the sale of milk and its products has been held 
essential to the preservation of the public health. 
(Koy V. City of Chicago, 263 111. 122.) A munici- 
pality is authorized to provide by ordinance against 
the sale of impure, unwholesome and adulterated 
food. (City of Chicago v. Union Ice Cream Manf. 
Co. 252 111. 311.) The provisions of section 1 of 
article 5 of the Cities and Villages act authorize 
municipal corporations to regulate the sale of bread 
and to prescribe the weight and quality of bread 
in a loaf. (City of Chicago v. Schmidinger, 243 111. 
167.) The business of manufacturing candy and 
confections for the wholesale or retail trade is also 
subject to regulation by city ordinance. (Cracker- 
jack Co. V. City of Chicago, 330 111. 320.) In Ruhan 
V. City of Chicago, 330 111. 97, the regulation of the 
laundry business by ordinance was upheld. It was 
there said: "Unsanitary conditions affect, or may 
affect, not only those engaged in the business, but 
those for whom the service of laundry work, in any 
of its aspects, is performed. * * * The process of 
laundering is done to cleanse clothing, bed linens 
and every other known article of like character. 



The danger to health and public safety renders the 
business a proper one for municipal regulation." 
For the reasons heretofore stated, the case of Pot- 
son V. City of Chicago, 304 111. 222, cited by counsel 
for appellant, is not controlling as to the ordinance 
here considered. In that case there was no indica- 
tion that the ordinance was intended as a health 
measure. The ordinance, here, relates to the regu- 
lation of conditions surrounding the sale and handl- 
ing of food and drinks. It tends to protect the pub- 
lic against the hazards of unsanitary places for dis- 
pensing foods and drinks. It tends to promote the 
health of the public and guard it against disease. 

It is contended that even if it be assumed that 
the city had the power to adopt the ordinance, the 
annual license fees provided for places having vari- 
ous capacities for service accommodations do not 
bear a reasonable relation to the burdens placed 
upon the city because of such regulatory provisions. 
The power to regulate includes the power to license. 
(Crackerjack Co. v. City of Chicago, supra; City 
of Chicago, v. Arhuckle Bros, supra.) The fee is 
based upon the service accommodation or seating 
or counter space for each individual customer. It 
is contended that there is no connection between 
the seating capacity or space occupied by a cus- 
tomer in a food-dispensing establishment and the 
difficulty or burden of inspection. This case differs 
from Ward Baking Co. v. City of Chicago, 340 111. 
212, cited by the appellant. In that case there was 
a license fee based upon the number of vehicles 
engaged in the delivery of bakery goods, but there 
were no conditions prescribed as to the manner of 
maintaining and operating the vehicles, nor pro- 
vision for their inspection to ascertain whether 
they were kept free from dust, as the ordinance 
provided. As heretofore stated, the ordinance here 
covers the entire field of regulation of the business 
of selling to the public at retail, foods and drinks 
for consumption on the premises. The welfare of 
the customers served in food-dispensing establish- 
ments is the basis of the ordinance. The space 
occupied for that purpose has some relation to the 
purpose of the ordinance. Whether it is the most 
logical basis for determining the fee to be charged 
for inspection is not the province of the court to 
determine if there is some reasonable basis for it. 
When the legislative department of a city has 
exercised its power of regulation upon a subject 
within the police power, unless there is a palpably 
arbitrary exercise of such power, the courts will 
not declare the regulatory provisions void. Under 
the police power license fees may not be imposed 
wholly for the purpose of obtaining revenue, 
(Herb Bros. v. City of Alton, supra; Ward Baking 
Co. V. City of Chicago, supra;) but a license fee 
which will legitimately assist in the regulation of 
the business may be exacted, and it is not essential 
that it be confined to the exact expense of issuing 
a license and regulating and inspecting the business. 
(City of Chicago v. Arbuckle Bros, supra; City of 
Chicago v. Alpert, Inc., 368 111. 282.) The ordi- 
nance is not invalid because of the classification of 
fees according to the space occupied by or pro- 
vided for the customers to be accommodated. 

It is also contended that notwithstanding the 
many regulatory provisions imposed upon food-dis- 
pensing establishments, the ordinance nevertheless 
requires the commissioner of health of the city to 
approve the application made for licenses; that even 
if the provisions of the ordinance have been com- 
plied with the health commissioner may reject an 
application; that there is not a sufficient definition 
of what constitutes a sanitary condition or fit and 



6220 



JOURNAL— CITY COtnSTCIL— CHICAGO 



June 20, 1938 



proper place for the conduct of the business, and 
that too broad a discretion is vested in the commis- 
sioner of health of the city. 

Sections 3014 to 3016 of the ordinance contain 
certain definite requirements to be met by the ap- 
plicant. He must supply any information required 
by the commissioner of health concerning the size 
and nature of the place to be used for the purpose 
of the business and the conditions, equipment and 
facilities provided. The commissioner of health 
must cause an inspection to be made of the premises 
to be occupied, the equipment contained therein, 
the persons to be employed, the sanitary and 
hygienic conditions and matters necessary to be in- 
quired into from the standpoint of health and sani- 
tation. The commissioner must be satisfied that the 
place where the business is to be conducted is in a 
sanitary condition and is a fit and proper place for 
the business, and that the provisions of the ordi- 
nance relative to the conduct of the business have 
been observed. Provision is miade for the revoca- 
tion of the license upon the recommendation of the 
commissioner of health, if the licensee violates a 
State law or municipal ordinance relating to the 
conduct of the business of food dispenser. Periodical 
inspections are provided for practically the same 
purpose as the initial inspection, to assure com- 
pliance with the State law and municipal ordi- 
nances upon the subjects of health and sanitation. 

Under the ordinance here in question the com- 
missioner of health must be satisfied that the provi- 
sions of the ordinance have been observed with 
respect to the premises of an applicant or licensee 
being in a sanitary condition and a fit place for the 
conduct of the business, but the various sections of 
the ordinance define the conditions which must 
exist to permit an applicant to receive and a licensee 
to retain, a license to conduct the business of a food 
dispenser. While there is some general language 
pertaining to the powers and duties of the commis- 
sioner of health, the manifest purpose of the ordi- 
nance is that the initial and periodical inspections 
are to be made in accordance with the ordinance, 
and particularly the provisions of sections 3018 to 
3036, inclusive. The regulations provided in these 
sections are specific and in detail with respect to the 
place, rooms, equipment, persons, utensils and 
clothing of employees and for the observance of 
sanitary requirements to insure cleanliness. The 
health commissioner's duties are prescribed and are 
to be exercised in accordance with the definite pro- 
visions of the ordinance. He is not authorized to 
make regulations or exercise arbitrary power in 
determining whether sanitary conditions exist in a 
particular place and that it is one fit and proper for 
the conduct of the business. He may not reject an 
application or cause a license to be revoked for 
personal reasons apart from the regulations con- 
tained in the ordinance, and legislative powers 
have, therefore, not been delegated to him. The 
ordinance does not deny the appellant due process 
of law. (Gundling v. City of Chicago, 176 111. 340.) 
The ordinance is valid. 

The judgment of the municipal court of Chicago 
is affirmed.

upon substantially the following terms and con- 
ditions which are fully set forth in the written 
agreement, to- wit: 

1. The Gas Company shall retain all its 
rights in said lands not inconsistent with the 
rights granted the City in this easement. 

2. The sewers shall be constructed in accor- 
dance with plans prepared by the City, and sub- 
ject to the approval of the Gas Company by its 
proper officials before work shall begin, and 
plats of location shall be attached to and made 
a part of the agreement. The city or its contrac- 
tor shall also submit to the Gas Company for its 
approval a program of procedure to the end that 
all operations of the Gas Company be adequately 
cared for during construction, and the City shall 
give sufficient notice of beginning of any opera- 
tions so that the Gas Company may make pro- 
visions against curtailment of production. 

3. The main sewer shall be of sufficient size 
to remove storm water and sanitary sewage from 
the lands of the Gas Company in said Section 
34, and shall be 18 feet wide and 14.4 feet high, 
internal dimensions, and the branch sewer shall 
be 8 feet in internal diameter. 

4. All work of any kind provided for in the 
agreement shall be done in such manner as not 
to interfere with the continuous operation of the 
plant of the Gas Company which is understood 
to be necessary for a continuous and adequate 
supply of gas for the people of Chicago. All. 
railroad tracks, roadways, bridges, pipe, or power 
lines and conduits, and other facilities required 
for operation of the plant shall be maintained in 
service during construction, with special atten- 
tion to certain details of service equipment par- 
ticularly shown on the plats. 

5. The City shall install at its expense such 
sewers and drainage facilities in addition to the 
main and branch sewers as shall adequately di- 
vert into the sewer or into the drainage canal of 
the Sanitary District of Chicago all sewage, waste 
or storm waters now emptied into the West Fork 
of the South Branch of the Chicago River west 
of the main sewer in S. Pulaski road, or any such 
waste from Gas Company property now dis- 
charging into the Sanitary Canal as should be 
discharged into the sewer, all according to a plan 
and method to be submitted to and approved by 
the Sanitary District of Chicago. Plans and speci- 
fications for such sewers and drainage facilities 
have been submitted to and approved by the Gas 
Company, which plans shall be attached to and 
made a part of the agreement. 

6. Before any excavated material may be 
deposited as filling in the bed of the West Fork 
of the South Branch of the Chicago River so as 
to block the same as a water course, the City 
shall provide for diversion of all sewage or drain- 
age of whatever nature now emptying into said 
West Fork upstream from the point of any such 
filling; and all such filling within the premises 
of the Gas Company shall be done in a manner 
acceptable to the Gas Company. 

7. In the event that the work contemplated 
herein is not commenced within ninety days, 
and completed within two years after the execu- 
tian of the agreement, @r that after the com- 
mencement of operations the said work is 
permanently abandoned, the agreement shall

terminate, and the City or its contractor shall re- 
move its equipment and unused material from 
the premises of the Gas Company, and restore 
the same to a safe, sightly and usable condition. 
In like manner, as the work shall progress, and 
upon its completion, the said premises shall be 
left free of all equipment, material and tem- 
porary structures, and be restored as nearly as 
may be to their former condition including fences, 
roadways, bridges and other facilities removed, in 
connection with the sewer construction. 

8. The City or its contractor shall make pro- 
visions for some means of ready identification 
of all workmen and employes for regulation of 
times and places at which they will enter and 
leave the premises of the Gas Company, for the 
restriction of employes to such portions of the 
premises as may be mutually agreed upon with 
the Gas Company, and for cooperation with the 
Gas Company in enforcing all necessary safety 
measures. The City also agrees, because of the 
special nature of the business carried on by the 
Gas Company in its plant, to take special pre- 
cautions against fire in the use of open fires or of 
naphtha, gasoline, oils or other inflamable sub- 
stances, and to observe and enforce rules of the 
plant against smoking on the premises. 

9. The City agrees, as an express condition of 
the granting of this easement, that the sewer shall 
be installed without any special assessment upon, 
or other cost, to the Gas Company, except such 
as may be otherwise provided in the agreement. 

10. The City agrees to carry on construction 
of the sewer and appurtenances, and to operate 
and maintain the sewer at all times in such order 
and condition that, aside from the fact of its 
existence it will not be a source of danger to or 
interference with the property of the Gas Com- 
pany, or the safe operation of its plant, and that 
in case of failure of the City so to do, the Gas 
Company may, after reasonable notice to the City, 
incur such expense as shall be necessary to avoid 
such danger, and to protect its property and facil- 
ities, and that the City will within a reasonable 
time after presentation of a bill therefor, pay the 
actual cost of such protection, plus 10 percent 
thereof; provided, however, that lack of such 
action on the part of the Gas Company will not 
release the City from liability for loss or damage 
occasioned, and provided also that the City will 
not be responsible for any cost or expense in- 
curred in the removal, relocation or reconstruc- 
tion of any plant facilities or equipment, other 
than sewers, found in the path of the sewer, 
or which may be incurred because of the 
existence of said sewer, nor for expense of 
watchmen or inspectors employed by the Gas 
Company, unless such watchmen or inspectors 
become necessary through the failure of the City 
or its contractor to provide same, for the protec- 
tion of the Gas Company or the public. 

11. The City agrees that as soon as the sewer 
shall be put in service all rights of the City in 
and to the property now occupied by the existing 
9-foot sewer in the vacated portion of S. Kil- 
bourn avenue from the south line of W. 31st 
street to the north bank of the west fork of the 
south branch of the Chicago River will be relin- 
quished by the City, and that the City will 
abandon the said 9-foot sewer and cause it to be 
filled. 



12. The City agrees to indemnify and save 
harmless the Gas Company for any loss, damage 
or expense for which it may become liable be- 
cause of injury to or death of persons, or for 
damage to or loss of property, real or personal 
arising from the construction or maintenance of 
the sewer under this grant, and further agrees to 
defend any action or suit against the Gas Com- 
pany growing out of such loss or damage. 

13. The City agrees that no earth or material 
of any kind except as provided in the agreement 
can be deposited by the City in that part of the 
West Fork of the South Branch of the Chicago 
River within the limits of the Gas Company's 
property without the permission and consent of 
the Gas Company. 

14. It is mutually agreed that as used in this 
ordinance and the agreement hereunder, the 
words "the city or its contractor" shall be held 
to include any department or agency of the Fed- 
eral government, or any sub-licensee furnished 
or permitted by the City to carry on any of the 
construction of work contemplated herein, and 
it is understood that any and all such agencies 
shall be bound by and shall comply with the 
conditions of this ordinance and the said agree- 
ment. 

Section 2. This ordinance shall be effective from 
and after its passage.

Statement of Expenditures by the City of Chicago for 
Coi'porate Purposes. 

The Committee on Finance submitted the following 
report, which was ordered published and placed on 
file: 

Chicago, June 18, 1938. 

The Honorable, the Mayor and City Council: 

Gentlemen — Sundry mis-statements have been 
made throughout the state with reference to expen- 
ditures by the City of Chicago. These have given an 
erroneous impression and among some individuals 
have created an unjustifiable prejudice. 

One statement is that money is being spent un- 
necessarily, or even wastefully, in the operation of 
the City government. Another is that if expendi- 
tures were reduced, sufficient money would be 
available to meet the relief demand in Chicago. 

Much has been said to support these two conten- 
tions. The major suggestion in support thereof is 
that City expense be cut in accordance with the 
recommendation of the Mayor's Advisory Commit- 
tee that was appointed early in 1931 by the late 
Mayor Anton J. Cermak. This Advisory Committee 
worked six months with efficiency engineers and 
reported November 27, 1931. 

Its "Summary of Recommended Savings" (reduc- 
tion in 1931 budget) is as follows: 



Departmental Operating Savings,. ...$ 8,383,914 

Central Purchasing 1,000,000 

Miscellaneous Corporate, Water, Ve- 
hicle Tax, and Water Works Certifi- 
cates Fund Saving 1,438,408 

Estimated Reduction through Wide 
Competition and Close Supervision 
on Special Assessment and Bond 
Contract Projects 12,100,000 



Grand Total Annual Savings $22,922,322 

"Why haven't these savings been made?" has been 
asked. That question sounds plausible. The answer 
is "They have been made — and much more." In- 
stead of saving the recommended $22,922,322 the 
expense has been cut more than $39,714,000. In 
comparison with the recommended savings the re- 
ductions made — 1931 expense as compared with 
1937 — may be summarized as follows: 

Corporate Expense Savings $ 7,684,982.77 

Vehicle Tax Reduction in Fees 1,271,660.00 

Central Purchasing Savings on 

Comparable Price Levels 1,858,000.00 

Special Assessment Saving to Prop- 
erty Owners 28,900,000.00 



Total Reduction in Expense $39,714,642.77 

The Advisory Committee's "Departmental Oper- 
ating Savings" of $8,383,914 is composed of $7,176,- 
833 in the corporate fund and $1,207,081 in other 
funds. The above and subsequent data submitted 
do not apply to appropriations. An appropriation is 
Council authority to spend. It is much more definite, 
fair, and important to compare expenditures. It is 
a simple matter to compare the expenditures of 
1931 for corporate purposes with those of 1937, in 
the annual reports of the Comptrollers. The 1931 
corporate expense was $57,545,004. The compar- 
able expense for 1937 was $49,860,022. This is a 
reduction of $7,684,082, or it is $508,149 more than 
the Mayor's Advisory Committee estimate of pos- 
sible savings to be made. There can be no ques- 
tion that this reduction has been eff:ected. 

The next proposed saving of the Mayor's Advis- 
ory Committee was in the establishment of a central 
purchasing plan. Saving was estimated at $1,000,- 
000. The plan was inaugurated. The results may- 
be briefiy stated. 

In 1931, for commodities, materials, and supplies,, 
the City spent $7,020,000. The price of commodities 
since 1931 has substantially increased, as undoubt- 
edly would be verified by Mr. Sewell L. Avery,, 
Chairman of the Mayor's Advisory Committee, and 
other members, as Barney Balaban, William R. 
Dawes, Joshua Esposito, D. F. Kelly, John McKin- 
lay, Bert A. Massee, and Elmer Stevens. Babson's: 
reports shov/ that the average increase in commodi- 
ties has been 30 per cent between 1931 and 1936. 
Assuming that that is approximately correct, the 
$6,195,000 spent for commodities in 1936 would be 
only $4,337,000 on the price level of 1931. That is 
an indicated saving of $1,858,000 on the same price 
level which may be credited to central purchasing. 

To be conservative 1937 purchases are intention- 
ally omitted. Those totalled $7,028,000, but Bab- 
son's reports indicate that the price level for com- 
modities in 1937 was 40 per cent higher than in 
1931. On that basis of reckoning the saving from 



6236 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



June 20, 1938 



central purchasing would be $2,811,000, instead of 
$1,858,000 as above mentioned. 

The next item of recommended savings is on vari- 
ous funds, which the committee estimated at 
$1,438,408. To illustrate what has been done in that 
direction it may be recited that the owners of motor 
and other vehicles alone have been given a saving 
of $1,271,660. Upon the recommendation of the 
Mayor, license fees for motor vehicles were reduced 
20 per cent. This percentage on the 1937 collec- 
tions saved the owners of motor cars $1,271,660. 

The last recommendation of the committee was 
for a reduction of $12,100,000 on special assess- 
ments and bond contract projects. 

The special assessments levied in 1931 totalled 
$29,100,000, and only $200,000 in 1937, and these 
latter were on assessments that were carried over 
from former years. No new special assessments 
have been levied since 1931. It follows, necessarily, 
that the reduction of the burden on property owners 
for special assessments between 1931 and 1937 has 
been $28,900,000. 

Consequently, the total reductions in expense 
(1937 under 1931) have been $39,714,000, or 



$16,792,000 more than the Mayor's Advisory Com- 
mittee recommended. 

These are accurate, official figures from the offices 
of the City Comptroller and the City Collector. They 
clearly indicate the facts. They show conclusively 
that a diligent and successful effort has been made 
by the administration to curtail expense on an enor- 
mous scale. They refute conclusively the insinua- 
tion that the savings have not been made, as the 
Mayor's Advisory Committee recommended. 

Set aside, mom.entarily, the $28,900,000 sav- 
ing in special assessments upon property owners, 
and return to the expense of the corporate fund, the 
operating fund of the City. That reached its peak 
in 1929, the year of the revaluation of property for 
1928 tax levies, with its attendant complications 
which prevailed for several years. That every one 
may have the facts on corporate expense, there are 
presented below the yearly expenditures, showing 
the reduction in expense each year, as compared 
with 1931 and with 1930. These are official pub- 
lished figures, except that when the State Supreme 
Court ordered a restoration of $738,300 in Municipal 
Court salaries, that has been charged to those years 
when the pay cuts were made, viz: 1932, 1933, and 
1934. The table follows:

8,908,000 



Now the second statement: If the City will cut 
its expense it will meet its relief demands. 

It will be noticed from the above table that the 
corporate expense in 1937 was $3,596,000 more than 
in 1932. The two major reasons for this increase 
are: Restoration of wages and salaries, and increase 
of 30 or more per cent in commodity and material 
prices. 

Of course it is impossible for the City, in its 
financial condition, to buy below market. "The mere 
statement of that reason for the enlarged expense is 
a convincing proof that it is true. 

The restoration of wage and salary cuts was 
equally unavoidable. First, the State Supreme Court 
decided to reimburse Municipal Court employes for 
salary cuts of prior years to the extent of $"738,000 
in that one department alone. Other similar deci- 
sions followed. Unions demanded pay increases and 
demanded more working days per week. In addi- 
tion, the policy of the national government required 
prevailing wages, and prohibited reduction in per- 
sonnel, so long as the Federal Government con- 
tributed millions for relief and work relief. 

Therefore, those who advocate a reduction in 
City corporate expense urge a pay cut. That, prob- 
ably means putting still more on relief. A third 
reason for the increase in City expenditures was 
the adding of 400 policemen, at an expense of $1,- 



000,000, to restore the police department to its 
normal quota. Also, several score of firemen were 
added for the same reason. The Chicago Crime 
Commission says that the number of Chicago mur- 
ders in 1932 was 344, compared with 188 in 1937. 
Burglaries dropped from 22,791 in 1932 to 11,500 
in 1937, and robbery from 15,943, to 5,297 in the 
same period. We firmly believe that the added police 
expense was justified many times. The same is true 
of the added fire department expense. The Chica- 
go fire losses in 1931 were $9,502,000, and in 1932 
were $8,412,000, as compared with $3,712,000 in 
1937. Fire insurance rates were substantially re- 
duced. To again decrease the number of firemen 
would probably increase insurance premiums. 

The City's Corporate expense from its peak of 
$59,673,000 in 1929, slid down to $58,768,000 in 1930, 
and to $57,545,000 in 1931. This 1931 budget was 
prepared under the Thompson administration. 
Mayor Cermak taking office later in the year. He 
immediately started a heroic effort to trim expendi- 
tures. As compared with the previous year's ex- 
penditure he managed to effect a saving of about 
$1,223,000. 

The year of 1932 was the first that Mayor Cer- 
mak had a hand in preparing the annual appropri- 
ation bill. He got through a cut of 21.3 per cent in 
salaries of all City employees on a monthly basis, 
as well as a like reduction in working time of other

employes. This resulted in a cut of a trifle less than 
$8,000,000. This sum, with other economies ef- 
fected, resulted in a total reduction from $57,545,- 
000 expenditures in 1931 to $46,264,000 in 1932. 

Mayor Kelly took office in 1933. Although the 
budget had been prepared before he assumed the 
Chair, he started a rigid control over expenditures. 
Despite a restoration in small part of police and fire 
salaries, made effective in 1932, he was able to close 
1933 with corporate expenditures of $44,609,000, as 
compared with $46,264,000 for the previous year — 
a reduction of $1,655,000. 

In 1934, the first year Mayor Kelly had a 
part in the preparation of the annual bud- 
get, the expenditures were still further reduced. 
He limited the corporate expense that year to $44,- 
071,000, a reduction of $538,000 below 1933. 

In 1935, there was a further partial restoration 
of salary rates in the police and fire service. Orig- 
inally the cut had been 21.3 per cent, and it was 
brought down to 10.7 per cent. Wages and salaries 
of other employes were partly restored; instead of 
the 21.3 per cent, the cuts were then made 14 to 16 
per cent. These restorations called for approxi- 
mately $1,400,000 for that year. It was in that year 
that the Supreme Court forced a reimbursement of 
the salary cuts of Municipal Court employes. It 
was also in that year that 400 policemen and a large 
number of firemen were added to the force. In ad- 
dition, the expense of elections in 1935 was $1,138,- 
000, as compared with $783,000 in 1934. This in- 
crease in the expenditures was mandatory. 

These items explain the increase in the corporate 
fund expenditures from $44,071,000 in 1934 to 
$48,617,000 in 1935. 

In 1936 the salary cuts for police and fire service 
were made 7.10, as compared with 10.7 per cent 
in 1935; and for other service 10.7, as compared 
with 14 to 16 per cent the previous year. These 
increases entailed added salary expense of about 
$1,650,000, yet the total corporate fund expense for 
1936 ($49,221,000) was only $604,000 above the 
$48,617,000 spent in 1935. 

The expenditures in 1937 were $639,000 above 
1936. During the latter part of 1937 the final resto- 
ration of salary cuts was put into effect, although 
practically every other large city in the country 
had restored salaries completely two years pre- 
viously. 

The increases in the 1938 appropriations are 
largely accounted for in the following reasons: 

Final restoration of salary cuts in effect the last 
three months in 1937 adds $2,310,000 to the 1938 
expense. 

The increase in election expenditures from $347,- 
000 in 1937 to $1,117,000 in 1938 adds $772,000 to 
the 1938 expense. 

The estimated cost of removing the railroad 
tracks from the Municipal Airport and in making 
certain improvements adds $800,000 more. 

The transfer of the Health Department from the 
City Hall to the old Criminal Courts Building and 
alterations to the City Hall space adds another 
$100,000, and the securing of right-of-way for the 
Lakes-to-Gulf Waterway adds still another $100,- 
000. 

Altogether, the added expense of $3,596,000, as 
between 1932 and 1937, is not only justified but 
also required beyond any reasonable question. 



An analysis of City expenditures will show that 
the pay restorations and increases in commodity 
prices have been larger than the total increase in 
expenditures between 1932 and 1937. It follows, 
necessarily, that large savings have been effected 
to offset partly the pay restorations and increased 
costs due to price level. 

Despite the necessary increase in Corporate ex- 
penditures of $3,596,000 (1937 over 1932) there has 
been a decrease in expense (including other funds) 
of $39,714,000 between 1931 and 1937. 

This presentation demonstrates that it is highly 
impracticable if not financially impossible, to re- 
duce City expenditures for the purpose of meeting 
the relief demand in Chicago. 

It has been shown by the foregoing comments 
that that proposal is not feasible even if measured 
by the yardstick presented by those who advo- 
cate it.

Whereas, The record made by the Chicago Law 
Department since its reorganization and consolida- 
tion in 1935 under the direction of the head of the 
Law Department, Corporation Counsel Barnet 
Hodes, has reflected credit upon the City of Chica- 
go because of the many innovations for improved 
administration; and 

Whereas, Publications of outstanding university 
law schools in the country and recognized legal 
publications such as the American Bar Association 
Journal, the Chicago Bar Association Record, and 
the Illinois Bar Journal, together with those of rep- 
resentative civic groups, have carried articles com- 
mending the City of Chicago for its progressive 
Law Department; and 

Whereas, The Chicago Law Department in re- 
cent months has won numerous notable victories 
in important cases of litigation involving the City; 
and 

Whereas, The Law Departments of other cities 
and also of other governing bodies have looked 
upon the Chicago Law Department as a model of 
administration and effectiveness and are using 
methods of administration developed by the Chi- 
cago Law Department; and 

Whereas, New services of the Chicago Law De- 
partment, including the publication of opinions in 
accordance with the new style, the publication of 
an Opinion Bulletin, publication of an Amendment 
Guide to the Revised Chicago Code of 1931, and 
publication of an Ordinance Bulletin, have re- 
dounded to the effectiveness of all other depart- 
ments in the City and have been of tremendous 
assistance to all City officials and also interested 
citizens; and 

Whereas, It is the sense of the City Council that 
such meritorious work on the part of a city depart- 
ment is deserving of especial commendation by this 
body on behalf of the city administration and the 
taxpayers of Chicago; 



Now Therefore Be It Resolved, That the City 
Council of the City of Chicago herewith extend its 
commendation to the Chicago Law Department, its 
head, Corporation Counsel Barnet Hodes, and to 
the members of his staff, for the record the depart- 
ment has made in giving the City of Chicago in- 
creased legal service of the type that has not only 
made more effective the general administration of 
the City of Chicago but has also won the praise of 
professional legal groups and civic groups gen- 
erally.

apartment district, the erection of a 2% -story

sq. ft. permitted, on premises consisting of a plot 
of ground 192 x 125 ft. at 3400-16 Emerald ave- 
nue; and 

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered April 14, 1938, reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed im- 
provement does not conform with requirements 
of zoning ordinance'; 

and 

Whereas, the proposed building is to be located 
in a 2d volume, apartment district and would 
violate the strict letter of the zoning ordinance; 
and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this ap- 
plication by the board of appeals at its regular 
meeting held on May 9, 1938, after due public 
notice by publication in the Chicago Journal of 
Commerce on April 23, 1938; and 

Whereas, the use district maps and volume dis- 
trict maps show that the premises are located 
in an apartment district and 2d volume district, 
respectively; and 

Whereas, the board of appeals is authorized by 
law in cases where there are practical difficulties 
or particular hardship in the way of carrying 
out the strict letter of the zoning ordinance to 
hear and recommend variations of such ordi- 
nance to the City Council under rules provided 
in the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, in the rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance relating to the authority of the board 
of appeals to recommend variations to the City 
Council there appears the following rule in Sec- 
tion 28, paragraph (5): 

'In a 1st, 2d or 3d volume district, the moder- 
ate relaxation of the area or volume provisions 



of Sections 16, 17 or 18 for the erection of a 
building for an R2 use or A2 use'; 

and 

Whereas, the board of appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises, finds 
that the premises are located in a 2d volume, 
apartment district and that the applicant should 
be granted relief on the ground of particular 
hardship in the way of carrying out the strict 
letter of the zoning ordinance on condition that 
all permits necessary for the erection of the pro- 
posed building shall be obtained within three

plied with and that plans in triplicate shall be

ing permit is issued herein and 

Whereas, the board further finds that the

district; that there is particular hardship in the 
way of carrying out the strict letter of the zoning 
ordinance and that the proposed building will not 
injure the appropriate use of neighboring prop- 
erty and that the variation may be made con- 
sistently in harmony with the intent and purpose 
of the zoning regulations and would not be detri- 
mental to the public welfare, safety or health.

lowing ordinance:

ing door at any doorway in an inclosure for a ver- 
tical means of exit shall be arranged to open only 
in the direction of the way out of the building. 
At every doorway which connects any habitable 
space with a corridor, lobby or other horizontal exit 
connection, it shall be permissible to arrange any 
swinging door to open into the habitable space, ex- 
cept in theatres, open air assembly units, public as- 
sembly units, churches and schools where such 
doors shall open in the direction of egress. 

Item 3. Outside Exit Doorways and Doors. No 
door or .other closure for any outside doorway shall, 
when opened, project over a public sidewalk, street, 
alley or other public space, except as otherwise pro- 
vided in this ordinance. No door or other closure 
for any outside exit doorway, when opened, shall in 
any manner obstruct egress through any other out- 
side exit doorway and, where necessary to avoid 
such obstruction, such a door or closure shall be 
recessed; provided however, that such recess or ves- 
tibule shall not encroach upon any required public 
space. Every swinging door which opens into an 
outside passage leading to a public sidewalk, street, 
alley or other public space, shall be arranged to 
swing only in such manner that, if it should be ajar 
when the occupants are passing through such pas- 
sage on their way out of the building, it shall auto- 
matically be closed by the movement of the crowd, 
or else shall swing through an arc of at least one 
hundred eighty (180) degrees against the wall of 
the passage. Every outside exit door shall swing 
outward, except in single dwellings, multiple dwell- 
ings, business units not more than one (1) story 
high with a floor area of five thousand (5,000) 
square feet or less and garages of Class II, unless 
otherwise provided in special occupancy chapters. 

Item 4. Revolving Doors. Except in theatres and 
places of public assembly, a revolving door, meeting 
the requirements of this ordinance, may be used as 
a means of exit. The revolving wings of such re- 
volving doors shall be so arranged that, by the 
application of a force slightly more than is neces- 
sary to revolve said doors and which one (1) per- 
son of ordinary strength is capable of exerting, all 
the wings of said door shall fold fiat on each other 
in an outward direction, or unless the revolving 
wings of said revolving doors are so arranged that 
they may be readily collapsed or removed by pres- 
sure or simple mechanical means and leave suffi- 
cient opening for two (2) or more persons to pass 
through with a minimum width of not less than one 
(1) foot eight (8) inches on each side of said col- 
lapsed doors. Glass panels of revolving doors shall 
be of laminated shatter-proof glass or wired glass. 
Where revolving doors are used as exits they shall 
be so credited only to the extent of the clear space 
remaining when the doors are collapsed. 

Item 5. Other Swinging or Sliding Doors. The 
requirements of this section for doors opening out- 
ward shall not be construed to prohibit double 



6276 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



June 20, 1938 



swing doors which swing both inward and outward, 
except to vertical means of exit; nor shall such re- 
quirements be construed to prohibit the use of slid- 
ing fire doors in openings not counted as exits. 

Item 6. Width of Doorways, Allowance for Hard- 
ware. The clear width required for any exit door- 
way shall be the net unobstructed width of passage- 
way through the opening, measured across the 
doorway when the door is fully opened. No part of 
any door, hardware, or other object shall be per- 
mitted to encroach upon the required clear width 
of any exit doorway; provided however, that four 
(4) inches of the projection of any panic hardware 
or push bar may be disregarded in determining or 
measuring the required width of any such doorway. 

d) Exit Locks. Any lock, latch or other fasten- 
ing device, used on any door, grille, gate, sash or 
other closure for a doorway, gateway or window, 
through which it is necessary to pass in order to 
reach a required exit or exit connection, in any 
building, except a single dwelling, correctional and 
penal institution, shall be arranged so that it may 
be easily opened by any person on the way out 
without a key or other detached opening device. 
Standard panic-proof hardware or devices shall be 
provided where required by the occupancy chap- 
ters. 

e) Obstructions. There shall be no radiators, 
doors, or other obstructions to exit travel in any 
horizontal exit connection which is seven (7) feet 
or less in width, in any hospital, theatre, open air 
assembly unit, public assembly unit, church or 
school, other than handrails having a projection of 
four (4) inches or less from any wall. 

2601.03 Vertical Means of Exit: 

a) General. Every floor or occupied space more 
than one ( 1 ) foot above or below grade shall have 
vertical means of exit as hereinafter provided. 

b) Multiple Occupancy. Every required vertical 
means of exit in a building of multiple occupancy 
shall afford no communication except upon the 
main exit level, with any part of the building used 
for other occupancies, in the following classes of 
occupancy: 

Hospitals. : . ;, 

Hazardous Use Units. ■ . 

Garages. 

Theatres. 

Churches, except to a fireproof lobby in a busi- 
ness unit of fireproof construction. 

Schools, except to a fireproof lobby or corridor 
in a business unit of fireproof construction. 

2601.04 Each Fire Area Considered Separate 
Building: In every building each fire area shall be 
considered a separate and distinct building and, 
except as otherwise provided under this ordinance, 
shall have means of exit as required under this 
chapter which will be separate and distinct from 
those of any other fire area, except as follows: 

One (1) stairway may be used in common for 
two (2), areas of the same occupancy in the same 
building or as provided by Section 2601.03 for 
multiple occupancy, when such areas are separated 
by a required fire division wall; provided however, 
that such stairway shall be not less than five (5) 
feet six (6) inches wide. Such a stairway shall be 
considered equivalent to one ( 1 ) required stairway 



from each of said areas; provided however, that the 
inclosing walls shall be of the same construction as 
required for fire division walls, and shall have one 
(1) door at each opening which shall be not less 
fire-resistive than a standard fire door. 

2601.05 Vomitories: Any vomitory used as a 
means of exit or in lieu of a required stairway or 
ramp shall meet the requirements of Article 2601 
for required stairways and ramps with respect to 
number, width, location, inclosure and construc- 
tion, except as otherwise provided in Occupancy 
Chapters 7 to 18 inclusive. 

2601.06 Exits from Penthouses: Every non- 
habitable penthouse or other inclosed structure on 
a roof of any building shall have exit by one (1) 
stairway not less than two (2) feet wide, and if on 
a flat roof shall have at least one (1) doorway to 
such roof. 

2601.07 Exits from Roofs: Every building more 
than three (3) stories high and having a flat roof, 
shall be provided with one (1) means of access to 
such roof for eacli twenty thousand (20,000) square 
feet or fraction thereof of such roof area. Such 
access shall be either by a stairway from grade or 
from the main exit level of the building directly to 
said roof, or by a stairway from grade or from the 
main exit level of the building to a lower roof lead- 
ing to a stairway to the higher roof. Any of said 
stairways may be located either inside or outside 
the building. Every such stairway shall be acces- 
sible from a street or public alley, or from an open 
space directly connected with a street or public 
alley; and if located inside the building shall have 
the rise of its lowest step not more than fifty (50) 
feet by the most direct route of travel from an out- 
side doorway on such street, public alley or open 
space. Every building three (3) stories or less in 
height and having a flat roof, shall be provided 
with like access to such roof, except that a metal 
ladder may be used in lieu of the stairway from the 
topmost floor to the roof except in schools. Every 
penthouse with a flat roof shall be provided with 
either a stairway twenty-four (24) inches wide or 
a ladder fourteen (14) inches wide to such roof lo- 
cated either inside or outside the penthouse. 

2601.08 Exits from Courts: Every court in any 
building shall have an exit at the bottom which 
shall meet the requirements for exits from flat 
roofs; provided however, that if a fire escape or 
stairway terminates at the bottom of an inner court 
or a closed lot line court, such exit shall meet the 
requirements for stairway exits. The floor of every 
court or open space upon which any exit doorways 
open shall be paved and shall be generally level or 
if ramped shall have a slope not greater than one 
(1) rise in six (6) horizontal, and shall meet the 
adjoining public alley, sidewalk or other open space 
without a step or curb or other obstruction. Every 
pipe, manhole, door or other object located in the 
floor or walls of an exit court shall be flush with 
the floor or walls to prevent obstructions. 

2601.09 Areaways: Every areaway serving as a 
required means of exit from any basement shall 
have a clear width not less than that of any stair- 
way, ramp or other vertical means of exit, or any 
corridor, passage, doorway or other horizontal exit 
connection with which it is connected; provided 
however, that such an areaway shall not in any 
case have a clear width of less than four (4) feet. 

2601.10 Fire Escapes in Inner Courts: In any 

building of fireproof or semi-fireproof construction 
a fire escape stairway may be located in an inner 



June 20, 1938 



UNFINISHED BUSINESS 



6277 



court having a horizontal dimension of not less than 
fifty (50) feet, but such means of exit shall be con- 
nected at the bottom of the court with a stairway 
descending to an exit connection on the main exit 
floor, or to an outside exit doorway at ground level. 
Such a stairway shall be at least as wide as the fire 
escape served by it, but not less than three ( 3 ) feet 
wide if provided solely for the purpose of serv- 
ing such a fire escape, and if otherwise required by 
this ordinance shall be increased in width by the 
width of the fire escape served. In a building of 
fireproof construction such junction may be at any 
level, but in a building of semi-fireproof construc- 
tion such junction shall be no higher than thirty- 
five (35) feet above grade. 

Article 2602 — Stairways. 
2602.01 General: 

a) Definitions. 

Item 1. Stairway. For the purposes of this ordi- 
nance, a stairway shall be defined as a system of 
three (3) or more steps and rises between two (2) 
or more different levels of any building either 
within or without its inclosing walls, inclined at an 
angle of forty-five (45) degrees or less from the 
horizontal and serving as a means of ingress or 
egress of the occupants of such building. 

Item 2. Parts. The different parts of a stairway 
shall, for the purposes of this ordinance, be defined 
as follows: 

Cut. The horizontal distance between the faces 
of successive rises of a flight of steps. 

Flight. A series of steps between successive 
landings or between successive landings and plat- 
forms. 

Landing. The floor space adjoining the top or 
bottom of a flight, for a length equal to the width 
of stairs, or within the inclosure of an inclosed 
stairway.

ing. 

Nosing. A part of a tread projecting beyond the 
rise, but not a part of the required width of a cut. 

Open Stairs. An interior stairway without a 
complete inclosure. 

Platform. Any landing between flights other 
than at a floor level. 

Rise. The vertical distance between two (2) 
successive treads or between a tread and a landing. 

Soffit. The underside of a stairway.

Stringer. A support for treads and rises, ap- 
proximately at right angles thereto. 

Tread. The horizontal surfaces of a step, includ- 
ing nosing. 

Width of Stairs. The least clear unobstructed 
length of tread; provided however, that no hand- 
rail project more than four (4) inches into such 
stairway. 

b) Required Stairways. 

Iteml. Type, Number and Width. The required 
type, number and width of stairways shall be as 
provided in the occupancy chapters 7 to 18, inclu- 
sive. Except as otherwise permitted for certain 



utility stairs for the use of employees only, the 
minimum width of required stairways shall be three 
(3) feet; and where handrails are provided on both 
sides of a stairway, the minimum width shall be 
three (3) feet and four (4) inches. 

Item 2. Construction. Except as hereinafter pro- 
vided for fire-shield stairways, the materials used 
in the construction of stairways shall be those per- 
mitted under Chapter 31 — Construction Type 
Provisions, for the type of building in which they 
occur. 

Item 3. Inclosure of Stairways. The inclosure of 
fire-shield stairways shall be as required under Sec- 
tion 2602.04 of this Chapter. Other interior stair- 
ways, above the first story, and all basement stair- 
ways shall be inclosed as follows: 

In buildings of fireproof or semi-fireproof con- 
struction, inclosing walls and ceilings shall be of 
non-combustible materials of at least one (1) hour 
fire-resistive value. 

In buildings of other types of construction, inclos- 
ing walls and ceilings shall be of at least two (2) 
hour fire-resistive value. Such inclosing walls shall 
be of burned clay or Portland cement concrete 
units, four (4) inches or more in thickness. 

Doors in stair inclosures shall be at least forty- 
five (45) minute fire-resistive doors; except in 
dwellings of four (4) stories or less where two 
and one-fourth (21/4) inch thick solid wood slab 
doors may be used in lieu of forty-five (45) minute 
doors. 

Item 4. Location. Except as otherwise required 
or permitted under occupancy chapters 8 to 18, in- 
clusive, stairways shall be so located that no part 
of any habitable fioor shall be more than one hun- 
dred (100) feet distant from a stairway, measured 
upon the route of travel thereto. 

c) Non-Required Stairways. Non-required stair- 
ways shall be subject to the same requirements, 
except as to location, as required stairways. 

2602.02 Design of Stairways: 

a) Rise, Tread and Cut. No step in a required 
interior stairway shall have a rise of more than 
eight (8) inches and no step in a non-required stair- 
way shall have a rise of more than eight and one- 
half (81/2 ) inches. The cut of any stair shall be not 
less than nine (9) inches. The cut and rise of every 
stair shall be such that the product of the cut mul- 
tiplied by the rise shall be not less than seventy 
(70) and not more than seventy-five (75). Rises 
and treads shall be of uniform dimensions through- 
out any flight. Any vertical steps not conforming 
to this paragraph shall be as required for ladders. 
In a hospital, theatre, public assembly unit, church 
or school, the rise shall be not more than seven and 
one-half ( 7 y2 ) inches and the cut not less than ten 
(10) inches in any required stairway. 

b) Landings and Platforms. Every floor landing 
and every intermediate platform shall be level and 
shall be at least as wide as the stairway; except that 
in a straight run of stairs, an intermediate platform 
shall be at least four (4) feet long. Every platform 
intermediate between flights where there is a 
change of direction of sixty (60) degrees or less 
shall be at least four (4) feet long for its entire 
width and for a change of direction of more than 
sixty (60) degrees, such length shall be at least 
equal to the width. Every stairway shall have a 



6278 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



June 20, 1938 



level landing not less than four (4) feet long inter- 
vening between such stairway and any ramp or 
sloping floor. 

c) Length of Flight. No flight in any stairway 
shall have a total vertical rise of more than thirteen 
(13) feet six (6) inches without an intermediate 
level platform and no flight in any interior stairway 
shall contain less than three (3) rises. To overcome 
any lesser difl'erence in level, an incline with a slope 
as required for ramps shall be used. 

d) Handrails and Railings. Each side of a stair- 
way, except stairways in aisles between fixed seats, 
or between fixed seats and a wall, shall be protected 
with a railing. There shall be a handrail on at least 
one ( 1 ) side of every stairway, and on each side of 
every stairway which is more than three (3) feet 
six (6) inches in width. Every interior stairway 
which is more than seven (7) feet in width shall 
have double intermediate handrails to divide the 
stairway into clear widths of seven (7) feet or less. 
The height of a required handrail shall be not less 
than two (2) feet six (6) inches, nor more than 
three (3) feet, measured vertically from the front 
edge of any tread to the top of the handrail. Every 
required handrail and railing shall extend from the 
top of the stair to the front edge of the third tread 
from the bottom or to a lower point. Where a flight 
of stairs meets an intermediate platform, the ends 
of the side handrail or handrails shall be turned 
and joined to the wall, or else shall extend com- 
pletely across or around said intermediate platform. 
Handrails may be of any material which is equal or 
superior in strength to wood. In a theatre, public 
assembly unit, church or school, there shall be a 
newel post at the upper and lower ends of every 
intermediate handrail, which shall have a height 
not less than five (5) feet above the landing, plat- 
form or tread. In a hospital, theatre, public assem- 
bly unit, church or school, every handrail mounted 
on a wall shall have its ends returned and joined 
to the wall. 

e) Space Under Stairs. Space under the bottom 
flight of any stair in any building of wood frame, 
unprotected metal, non-combustible frame, ordi- 
nary or heavy timber construction, shall be either 
entirely open or completely inclosed without any 
opening thereto. 

f) Winders. There shall be no winders in any 
required or non-required stairway; except as here- 
inafter provided. Any tread in any winder shall be 
not less than nine (9) inches wide at a distance of 
one ( 1 ) foot from the center of the newel post or 
from the wall or railing on the narrow side of the 
t -ead and the widths of successive treads at such 
distance shall not vary from one another by more 
than one (1) inch. 

g) Stairways Combined. Stairways in the main 
exit story may be combined into a single open flight; 
provided however, that the width of such single 
flight shall be not less than one hundred and twenty 
(120) per cent of the sum of the required width of 
all flights combined; and provided further, that the 
number of flights so combined shall not exceed fifty 
(50) per cent of the total number of required stair- 
ways. 

h) Separation of Flights. Two (2) flights of a 
required stairway may be separated by a distance 
not exceeding fifty (50) feet measured on the most 
direct route of travel from the center of the bottom 
riser of one ( 1 ) flight to the center of the top riser 
of the other flight, and such route of travel shall be 
inclosed in the same manner as required for the 



stairway; provided however, that fire-shield stair- 
ways may be separated any required distance. Any 
required stairway which is inclosed in the flrst story 
shall extend to the main exit floor of the building 
and shall be so arranged that it will be impossible 
to pass from any such stairway to a basement stair- 
way without going outside the stairway inclosure. 
In any building abutting a two (2) level street, 
either street level may be used to determine the 
main exit level. 

i) Elimination of Sharp Internal Wall Angles in 
Stairway Inclosures. Where there is any change in 
the direction of a public stairway in a theatre, open 
air assembly unit, public assembly unit, church or 
school, the inclosing wall on the outer side of the 
turn shall be curved to a radius of not less than two 
(2) feet; or if such wall be not curved, it shall have 
no angle of less than one hundred thirty-flve (135) 
degrees, measured between the interior faces of the 
walls and shall be without any straight run less 
than one ( 1 ) foot eight ( 8 ) inches horizontally. 

2602.04 Fire-Shield Stairway: 

a) Definition. A fire-shield stairway is an in- 
terior stairway, constructed of non-combustible 
materials, in accordance with all of the provisions 
of this section; equipped with a vestibule or balcony 
vented to the outer air directly or by means of an 
interior smoke shaft; and with self-closing doors of 
at least a forty-five (45) minute fire-resistive value, 
at each entrance thereto. 

b) Construction. Every stair landing or platform 
in a fire-shield stairway shall be of fireproof con- 
struction and every other part shall be non-com- 
bustible except for handrails. 

c) Extent. Every fire-shield stairway providing 
exit from any story shall extend from such story 
to the main exit floor of the building, either directly 
or as hereinafter provided. 

d) Width. Every fire-shield stairway shall be 
not less than three (3) feet eight (8) inches wide 
at any point. 

e) Inclosures. Every fire-shield stairway shall be 
inclosed with solid walls of brick masonry built in 
accordance with the requirements of Chapter 38 — 
Masonry Construction of this ordinance, not less 
than eight (8) inches thick, or of reinforced con- 
crete built in accordance with the requirements of 
Chapter 39 — Reinforced Concrete Construction 
of this ordinance, not less than six (6) inches thick. 
Every inclosing wall shall extend from the bottom 
of the stairway to the roof or a fireproof floor above 
the stairway; and in a building of other than fire- 
proof or semi-fireproof construction, such walls 
shall extend at least three (3) feet above such roof. 
The thickness of such walls shall be maintained at 
all points, without any cut or chase to afford a bear- 
ing for any structural member or for any recesses. 
Any combustible structural member bearing in any 
way on such a wall, and any anchor of such a struc- 
tural member, shall be of a self-releasing type. The 
floor beneath and the floor or roof above every fire- 
shield stairway and any soffit in an offset connection 
permitted by this section shall be of fireproof con- 
struction not less than six (6) inches thick. There 
shall be no openings for doors, windows, recesses or 
cabinets, or other openings in the inclosure other 
than the required exit doorways. 

f) Vestibules or Balconies. The entrance from 
each floor of the building to the fire-shield stairway 
shall be through a vestibule or balcony, not less 
than the required width of stairs in least dimension. 



June 20, 1938 



UNFINISHED BUSINESS 



6279 



The inclosing walls, roof and floor of any such vesti- 
bule or balcony shall conform to the requirements 
of this section for the inclosure of stairs, except that 
an outside wall shall conform to the requirements 
of Chapter 38 — Masonry Construction for ma- 
sonry inclosing walls. There shall be no combustible 
material in any such vestibule or balcony. One ( 1 ) 
side of every vestibule or balcony required by this 
section shall face a street or an alley, or an open 
court or space leading directly to a street or to a 
public alley, or an interior smoke shaft conforming 
to the requirements of this section, or a fire-resistive 
tunnel leading directly to a street or public alley. 
The open side of every such entrance vestibule or 
balcony shall be closed for its full width up to a 
level four (4) feet above the floor by a solid wall. 
Extending from the top of such wall to the ceiling 
there shall be a space with a width not less than 
eighty (80) per cent of the width of the vestibule 
or balcony, or in any case not less than three (3) 
feet six (6) inches wide; which space shall be closed 
with a fire-shield as hereinafter provided, except 
that any such opening on a street or public space, 
not less than forty (40) feet wide, may be left open. 
Every balcony of a fire-shield stairway shall be 
constructed within the lot lines, and shall not en- 
croach upon or overhang a public street, public 
alley or other public space. 

g) Fire-Shields. Every fire-shield required or 
permitted by this section shall be set in a solid frame 
of steel or iron, or in a hollow sheet steel or iron 
frame filled with concrete, with a horizontal cross 
member midway between the top and bottom of said 
frame, which frame and cross member shall have a 
strength as required by Chapter 34 — Structural 
Provisions of this ordinance. Such frame shall be 
set with its inside surface flush with the inside face 
of the wall below the opening. Every fire-shield 
shall consist of two (2) or more metal sashes with 
wired glass, meeting the requirements of Chapter 
27 — Windows, Skylights and Ventilation for a 
Type A window. The upper half of every fire-shield 
sash shall be arranged to open automatically in case 
of fire to the full limit, and shall be held securely 
in such open position and shall close easily and 
quickly when desired. Every mechanism or device 
for the accomplishment of these purposes shall be 
positive in action, non-rusting and located inside 
the building and shall be as approved by the Com- 
missioner of Buildings. Every sash shall be pro- 
vided with a bar or lever for manual operation to 
release and open the sash; and shall have a sign 
placed near bar or lever which shall read, "IN 
CASE OF FIRE, PUSH." Such mechanism for the 
opening of sash may be actuated by springs, elec- 
tricity or other means which will set the mechanism 
in operation as a result of a difference in the rate 
of temperature rise, or other devices adjusted to 
operate when the surrounding air reaches a tem- 
perature of one hundred ten (110) degrees Fahren- 
heit. One (1) such temperature operated device 
shall be mounted in the ceiling outside every en- 
trance vestibule or balcony of the fire-shield stair- 
way at a distance of not more than five (5) feet 
from the entrance doorways, and the operation of 
any one (1) of these devices shall cause all the up- 
per sashes of the fire-shield in such story to open 
immediately. Sashes may be closed manually. 
Where the sash would otherwise exceed five (5) 
feet in width, intermediate piers or mullions of the 
same construction as required for fireproof con- 
struction shall be installed. 

h) Stair Landings and Floors. In any fire-shield 
stairway there shall be no step between the floor of 
a vestibule or balcony and the floor landing of the 



fire-shield stair, nor between either of such floors 
and the adjoining floor of the building. Any differ- 
ence in level between any such floors shall be over- 
come by a ramp with a slope not exceeding one ( 1 ) 
in twelve (12). Any exit landing shall be not less 
than the required width of the stairway. 

j) Smoke Shafts. Every interior smoke shaft 
used for an entrance vestibule or balcony of a fire- 
shield stairway, shall be at least five (5) feet wide 
at every point and shall be open and unobstructed 
over an area of not less than fifty (50) square feet 
from its bottom to the sky; provided however, that 
such shaft may be covered with a roof if the walls 
are open on all sides beneath such roof with a total 
open area of not less than one hundred ( 100) square 
feet, either with or without fixed louvers. The bot- 
tom of such smoke shaft shall be not more than 
twelve (12) inches above the floor level of the low- 
est required vestibule or balcony. Any such smoke 
shaft in a building of semi-fireproof or fireproof 
construction may be offset at any point; provided 
however, that such lateral connection shall be not 
less in area than the required area of the shaft, and 
the soffit of said lateral connection shall be inclined 
at an angle of not less than forty-five (45) degrees 
to the horizontal. There shall be no other open- 
ings into any smoke shaft except as required by this 
section. 

k) Exits. Every fire-shield stairway shall termi- 
nate at the main exit level of the building and shall 
provide an exit to a street or alley, or to an open 
space leading to a street or public alley, either di- 
rectly from the stairway without passing through 
any vestibule or by way of a tunnel of fireproof 
construction. The outside exit doorway from the 
fire-shield stairway shall have a clear width be- 
tween jambs not less than the width of the stair- 
way. Every exit doorway required by this section 
shall be equipped with a forty-five (45) minute 
fire-resistive door which shall open outward only. 
Every such door shall be self-closing, equipped with 
panic hardware. 

1) Entrance. In every building occupied, or ar- 
ranged, designed or intended for more than one ( 1 ) 
tenant, every entrance required by this section shall 
be from a corridor, lobby or other space accessible 
to all occupants of the building and to the public. 
In every story occupied by only one ( 1 ) tenant, all 
or any of the entrances required by this section, 
may be directly from rentable area or other space, 
without passage through any corridor, lobby or 
other public space. Every doorway from the build- 
ing into an entrance vestibule or balcony of a fire- 
shield stairway, and every doorway from such a 
vestibule or balcony into the stairway proper, shall 
have a clear width between jambs not less than 
ninety (90) per cent of the width of the stair, and 
shall be equipped with a forty-five (45) minute 
fire-resistive door. 

m) Fire-Shield Stairways in Lieu of Required 
Stairways. Two (2) fire-shield stairways not less 
than four (4) feet wide shall be considered equal to 
three (3) required interior stairways; provided 
however, that one (1) fire-shield stairway not less 
than four (4) feet wide shall be considered equal 
to two (2) required stairways in any building of 
fireproof or semi-fireproof construction except mul- 
tiple dwellings, hazardous use units, garages and 
theatres. Any building of fireproof or semi-fireproof 
construction except hospitals, garages, theatres, 
public assembly units, churches, schools and mul- 
tiple dwellings, in which the net area of the habit- 
able part of any floor does not exceed three thou- 
sand (3,000) square feet, is required to have only

one (1) stairway, if such stairway is a fire-shield 
stairway not less than four (4) feet wide. In every 
other building, in which a fire-shield stairway is 
used, there shall be not less than two (2) stairways. 
One ( 1 ) inch of width of a fire-shield stairway shall 
be considered equivalent to one and one-half (IVz) 
inches of width of any other type of inclosed stair- 
way, in determining the aggregate width of stair- 
ways required for any such building. A fire-shield 
stairway, serving an area of not more than three 
thousand (3,000) square feet may also be used in 
combination with two (2) interior stairways, when 
connected in the story served by it with both of the 
other two (2) stairways by means of a fireproof 
passage, which is no less in any horizontal dimen- 
sion than is required for an entrance vestibule of 
such a stairway; and on either side of such junction, 
such passage shall be at least seventy-five (75) 
per cent of the required width of the fire-shield 
stairway, but in any case not less than three (3) 
feet six (6) inches wide at any point. Where a 
fire-shield stairway is used in lieu of interior stair- 
ways, the distance from such stairway doorway to 
the end of a corridor shall be not more than one 
hundred (100) feet in any business unit on any floor 
other than at the main exit level. 

Article 2603 — Ramps in Lieu of Stairways. 

2603.01 General: Ramps may be used in lieu of 
stairways when constructed in accordance with the 
provisions of this chapter. 

2603.02 Design and Construction of Ramps: 

a) Number, Width, Location and Inclosure. The 
number, width, location and inclosure of ramps, 
used in lieu of stairways, shall be as required for 
the stairways displaced by such ramps; provided 
however, that ramps forming a required means of 
exit from a building shall be so inclosed as to pre- 
vent the accumulation or formulation of snow or ice 
thereon. 

b) Construction. Ramps shall be subject to all 
of the applicable provisions for the construction of 
stairways. 

c) Slope. Any ramp used in lieu of stairways 
shall have a slope not greater than one (1) unit rise 
in eight (8) units horizontal. Any ramp used as a 
horizontal exit connection shall have a slope not 
greater than one (1) unit rise in six (6) horizontal, 
except as otherwise provided in the occupancy 
chapters of this ordinance. 

d) Non-Slip Surfaces. Every ramp having a 
slope greater than one (1) rise in twelve (12) hori- 
zontal shall have a non-slip surface. 

e) Handrails. Where a ramp has a slope greater 
than one (1) rise in twelve horizontal, handrails 
shall be required at both sides, but no intermediate 
handrails will be required. 

Article 2604 — Escalators in Lieu of Stairways. 

2604.01 Where Permitted in Lieu of Required 
Stairways: An escalator moving in the direction 
toward the main exit level and meeting the require- 
ments of Chapter 44 — Elevators, Dumbwaiters, 
Escalators and Mechanical Amusement Devices 
may be used in lieu of an equal width of required 
stairway, and may be substituted for one (1) out 
of four (4) required stairways. Such escalators 
shall be inclosed as required for the stairways dis- 
placed thereby. An escalator serving a basement 
or sub-basement area shall be at least one hundred 
(100) feet distant from any escalator serving floors 
above the main exit level. 



Article 2605 — Exterior Fire-Escape Stairways. 

2605.01 General: Every exterior non-combus- 
tible stairway and every exterior flre-escape stair- 
way shall be constructed in accordance with the 
provisions of this article. 

2605.02 Where Permitted: Exterior fire-escape 
stairways shall not be placed on buildings hereafter 
erected or converted for department store use. Such 
exterior fire-escape stairways may be used on 
buildings classified as "Business Units" below a 
level of two hundred sixty-four (264) feet above 
grade, and on other buildings where permitted by 
occupancy provisions of this ordinance. 

2605.03 Design and Construction: 

a) In Lieu of Interior Stairways. One (1) or 
more exterior fire-escape stairways, meeting the re- 
quirements of this article, may be used in lieu of a 
required interior stairway, as provided in the spe- 
cial requirements for exits in buildings of each oc- 
cupancy group. Except for buildings designed, in- 
tended or used as department stores, one (1) or 
more exterior fire-escape stairways may be used 
in lieu of one (1) out of each three (3) required 
interior stairways for any building six (6) stories 
or less in height; provided however, that the total 
width of any such fire-escape stairway shall be not 
less than the required width of stairway which is 
displaced; and provided further, that a fire-escape 
stairway shall not be used in lieu of a fire-shield 
stairway or in lieu of any portion of the required 
width of a fire-shield stairway. A fire-escape stair- 
way shall be not less than two (2) feet and not 
more than four (4) feet wide unless an intermediate 
handrail is provided. 

b) Location. Every fire-escape stairway shall be 
located outside the building on a wall facing a street 
or public alley, or on a wall of a private alley, court 
or other open space not less than ten (10) feet wide 
and having an unobstructed exit to a street or public 
alley at grade. A tunnel of two (2) hour fire-resis- 
tive construction shall be considered an unob- 
structed exit from an inner court or a closed lot line 
court if it is of the required exit width, and is not 
less than seven (7) feet high throughout its length 
and is without any door, gate or other means of 
closure. No part of any such stairway shall project 
beyond a street line, except as otherwise provided 
for theatres, but may project wholly or in part into 
a public alley. A fire-escape stairway, placed on an 
exterior wall adjoining a fire-division wall, shall be 
considered as a fire-escape stairway for each build- 
ing area which it adjoins. In such cases there shall 
be at least one ( 1 ) door or window from each build- 
ing area leading to the stairway platform. 

c) Access to Stairway. Wherever access is re- 
quired from the interior of a building to a fire- 
escape stairway, such access shall be through a 
doorway or casement window not less than two (2) 
feet in clear width nor less than six (6) feet six (6) 
inches in clear height. The sill of any such doorway 
or window shall be not more than two (2) feet 
above the floor unless a stairway is provided leading 
to it. Such a stairway shall be at least as wide as 
the doorway or window. Any such required door 
or window shall be arranged to open from the inside 
without the use of a key. Successive flights of a 
fire-escape stairway may be located at a distance 
from one another and connected by a runway lo- 
cated outside the building and constructed as re- 
quired by this section for a fire-escape runway. 

d) Balconies, Landings, Platforms and Runways. 
Any balcony, landing, platform or runway forming

a part of a fire-escape stairway shall have a width 
or length not less than the required width of the 
stairway. No such balcony, landing or platform 
shall be less than three (3) feet long. No door, win- 
dow or shutter shall open in such a manner as to 
reduce any required dimension of a balcony, land- 
ing, platform or runway, or obstruct the clear pas- 
sage thereon, whether such clear passage is in 
excess of the required dimension or not. The frame 
of every balconj, landing, platform or runway shall 
be made of steel or wrought iron angles not less 
than two (2) inches by two (2) inches by one- 
fourth (Vi) inch in size, or of other structural 
shapes of equivalent strength. Such angles or other 
shapes shall be securely riveted together with cross 
bars every two (2) feet. Such bars shall be punched 
one-half ( % ) inch square close to the top of the 
bar on two (2) inch centers and one-half (%) 
inch square bars shall be forced through the same. 
The cross bars shall be securely riveted to the 
angle iron frame. The cross bars for a balcony two 
(2) feet four (4) inches wide or less shall be two 
(2) inches by three-eighths (%) inch. Balcony 
frames more than two (2) feet four (4) inches wide 
shall be made of not less than two (2) by three- 
eighths (%) inch iron, and shall be made to con- 
form with the increased dimensions of iron in cross 
bars. For a balcony three (3) feet or more in width, 
balcony frames shall be two and one-half (21/2) 
inches by three-eighths (%) inch. All balconies 
over this width shall have a two (2) inch "T" beam 
through the center of the balcony for the bars to 
rest upon; provided however, that such balconies 
and platforms of hospitals may have solid floors of 
non-combustible material. Such balconies shall 
have a substantial cast or wrought iron post every 
three (3) feet, bolted to the balcony. Every balcony 
shall have not less than three (3) guard rails which 
shall be of wrought iron or new iron pipe not less 
than three-fourths (%) inch in diameter, not less 
than three (3) feet high, and securely anchored to 
the wall of the building. 

e) Rise, Tread and Width of Stairs. Rises and 
treads shall be uniform throughout any flight. The 
height of rises shall not exceed eight (8) inches and 
the treads shall be not less than ten (10) inches 
wide for any required stairway, and any tread may 
over hang the tread beneath not more than one ( 1 ) 
inch. The width of the stairway shall be at least 
two (2) feet except as otherwise provided in this 
ordinance. 

f ) Anchors and Braces. "Where the anchors and 
braces by which a fire-escape stairway is attached 
to or supported on a building, are of non-corroding 
metal, such members shall not be required to be 
larger than necessary to carry the computed 
stresses. Where such members are of metal, sub- 
ject to rust or corrosion, they shall be one (1) inch 
square for a stairway, balcony, landing, platform or 
runway four (4) feet two (2) inches or less in 
width; one and one-fourth (1%) inches square for 
a stairway, balcony, landing, platform or runway 
more than four (4) feet two (2) inches and not 
more than six (6) feet in width; and one and one- 
half ( 1 ¥2 ) inches square for a stairway, balcony, 
landing, platform or runway more than six (6) 
feet in width. Every such anchor shall be securely 
fastened to the building by being passed through 
a masonry wall not less than twelve (12) inches 
thick and fastened on the inside thereof; or by be- 
ing inserted in masonry or reinforced concrete con- 
struction to a depth of not less than fourteen (14) 
inches at an angle of thirty-five (35) degrees witb 
the horizontal and set with Portland cement mor- 



tar; or by being fastened to a channel set in a ma- 
sonry or reinforced concrete wall, which channel 
shall be not lesfe than four (4) inches wide and 
five (5) feet long; or by being attached to a rein- 
forced concrete wall or structural member, when 
such wall or structural member and the attachment 
of the anchor thereto are designed in accordance 
with the Structural Provisions of this ordinance; 
or by being bolted or riveted to the structural metal 
frame of the building. All anchors shall be turned 
up at least eight (8) inches at their outer ends to 
provide for their attachment of posts. Braces shall 
be attached to the building either by being inserted 
in masonry or reinforced concrete to a depth of six 
(6) inches or more, and set with Portland cement 
mortar, or by bolting and riveting to the structural 
steel frame of the building. Single braces shall have 
a spread equal to the width of the platform. Braces 
for any platform more than five (5) feet wide shall 
be double, one (1) brace extending to the outside 
of the platform and one (1) to its center. Where 
an anchor or brace passes into or through any ma- 
sonry or reinforced concrete construction, the por- 
tion of such anchor or brace immediately outside 
such masonry or reinforced concrete shall be bent 
downward, either vertically or at an incline, to a 
point at least two (2) inches lower than the bottom 
of the opening into the masonry or reinforced con- 
crete. 

g) Stringers. Stringers shall be made of two (2) 
steel or wrought iron bars, three (3) inches by five- 
sixteenths (5/16) inch about one (1) inch apart, 
or four and one-half (41/2) inches by three-eighths 
( % ) inch fiat iron, or of steel or wrought iron chan- 
nels, angles or I-beams. Where over twelve (12) 
feet in length they shall have anchor and brace in 
the center. The tread shall be made of one-half ( V2 ) 
inch square steel or wrought iron bars, set corner 
upwards not to exceed one and five-eighths (1%) 
inches apart on centers, riveted to ends to two (2) 
by seven-sixteenths (7/16) inch flat iron or steel. 
Treads shall be supported by a truss made of steel 
or bar iron two (2) inches by three-eighths (%) 
inch in thickness welded to bars of treads in center 
supported by not less than two (2) seven-sixteenths 
(7/16) inch rods bolted at each end of treads. All 
stairs shall have three-bar railings made of one ( 1 ) 
inch bar iron for top rail, and three-fourths (%) 
inch bar iron for lower rails and when such stairs 
are more than three (3) inches from the wall or 
pass any opening of the building, or are more than 
three (3) feet in width, there shall be one (1) or 
more handrails on the wall side of such stairs. The 
top rail shall be not less than three (3) feet six (6) 
inches high measured vertically from the nosing of 
the stair treads. The required railings shall be sup- 
ported on posts made of one and one-half ( 1 V2 ) 
inch channels or angles or larger sections. Such 
posts shall be attached bgf;tolts or rivets or by weld- 
ing to the turned up end^ of the braces of the fire- 
escape. 

h) Counterbalances. A counterbalanced stair, 
meeting the requirements of this section, where 
such requirements are not in conflict with other re- 
quirements of this ordinance, may be used for the 
bottom flight of any stairway fire-escape. The ver- 
tical height from top landing to bottom landing of 
such a counterbalanced section shall not exceed 
fourteen (14) feet. The stringer carrying the coun- 
terweight may be built of steel or wrought iron 
channels, angles or I-beams, or any combination 
thereof, not less than eight (8) inches deep and 
three-eighths (%) inch thick; and shall be so de- 
signed that the maximum fibre stress over the sup- 
port shall not exceed eight thousand (8,000) pounds 



6282 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO

per square inch. The moment of inertia about the 
vertical axis parallel to the web of the stringer shall 
be not less than thirty-three (33) per cent of the 
moment of inertia about the horizontal axis per- 
pendicular to the web passing through the center, 
such moment of inertia being obtained by riveting 
an angle or angles to the channel or I-beam stringer. 
The same section of stringer shall be continued for 
an equal distance on either side of the support and 
the reinforcement shall be extended as close to the 
counterweight as practicable. The truss rod from 
the counterweight to the opposite end of the stringer 
shall be used either as an independent brace or in 
connection with the railing to prevent any sag of 
the stringer. It shall be at least three-fourths ( % ) 
inch in diameter, with connections sufficient to de- 
velop the strength of the rod, but in figuring 
stresses, the stringer must be assumed to carry the 
total dead and live load as required by this ordi- 
nance. The connection between the stringer and 
supporting rod must be designed to stiffen the 
stringer against horizontal or twisting motion by 
means of a steel casting or forging riveted to the 
stringer both through the web and the flange. 

i) Clearance Above Public Spaces. There shall 
be a vertical clearance of not less than twelve (12) 
feet, underneath any fire-escape, or any part there- 
of, which overhangs an alley or other public space, 
or an easement which is used as a public thorough- 
fare. This requirement shall apply to both fixed 
and counter-balanced section. 

j) Windows and Doorways. Wherever a stair- 
way, balcony, landing, platform or runway of a fire- 
escape stairway passes, a window or doorway, or is 
located ten (10) feet or less from a window or 
doorway, such window or door shall be of wired 
glass and shall have metal frames and sash; and 
wherever such a stairway passes above a window, 
doorway or other opening not fitted with wired glass 
and metal frame, such stairway shall be protected 
on the underside by sheet metal of not less than one 
hundred twenty-five thousandths (.125) inch thick- 
ness above such openings and for a distance of three 
(3) feet on each side thereof. 

Article 2606 — Chute Fire-Escapes. 

2606.01 General: 

a) In Lieu of Stairways. An inclosed chute, 
either straight or spiral, may be used in lieu of one 
(1) stairway out of three (3) required stairways 
from any story in any building four (4) stories or 
less in height, except hospitals, theatres, public as- 
sembly units or churches; provided however, that 
such chute fire-escape shall be credited as substitute 
for not more than tlie minimum width of a required 
stairway. An inclosed straight slide chute may be 
used in hospitals three (3) stories or less in height. 
An inclosed spiral chute within the building may 
be used in lieu of one (1) stairway out of three (3) 
required stairways within a building of any height, 
except in hospitals, sales units, theatres, public as- 
sembly units or churches; provided however, that 
in hazardous use units such spiral chute may be 
either within or without the building, and may be 
used in lieu of one (1) out of two (2) required 
stairways in hazardous use units when all such re- 
maining stairways are inclosed. No open chute 
shall be used as a means of exit. 

b) Location. An inclosed chute may be located 
either inside or outside a building. Every inclosed 
chute shall provide an exit to a street or public 



alley or to an open space leading to a street or pub- 
lic alley, either directly from the bottom of the 
chute, or by a route of travel measuring not more 
than twenty-five (25) feet from the point of dis- 
charge of the chute to an outside exit doorway of 
the building, or by way of a tunnel of two (2) hour 
fire-resistive construction not less than four (4) feet 
wide. 

c) Construction. The side, the inclosure, all sup- 
porting members and all parts of auxiliary features 
of an inclosed chute shall be of non-combustible 
material. Sheet metal shall be no thinner than No. 
16 U. S. standard gauge or .0625 inch for the slide 
or inclosure, except the inclosure of a straight slide 
which shall be no thinner than No. 20 U. S. Standard 
gauge. All sheet iron or steel in a slide and its 
inclosure located outside a building shall be galvan- 
ized. All sheet metal in the slide, whether inside or 
outside the building, shall be galvanized and un- 
painted, and shall be maintained bright and free 
from rust. The slide and any other part of the chute 
with which a user may come in contact shall be free 
of cracks, crevasses or any projection or roughness 
which may produce injury. The construction shall 
be without any projection which will afford a hand- 
hold whereby a user might stop his descent. The 
pitch and the design of the slide shall be such that 
a person using it will be discharged without injury. 
The height of the bottom of the discharge opening 
shall be not less than one (1) foot four (4) inches 
nor more than two (2) feet above the ground or the 
floor in front of it. Stresses in any part of a chute 
shall conform to the stresses required by the engi- 
neering sections of this ordinance. No galvanized 
metal shall be welded. An inclosed straight chute 
shall consist of a tube having an inside diameter 
not less than thirty-six (36) inches, with a flare 
to an inside height not less than forty-two (42) 
inches measured at the exit end, except that a 
straight chute for a school for children, or children's 
home may have an inside diameter of not less than 
two (2) feet six (6) inches. A straight tube shall 
be inclined at an angle not steeper than thirty (30) 
degrees to the horizontal for any building except 
a hospital and at an angle of forty (40) degrees to 
the horizontal for a hospital. Supports for the tube 
shall be spaced not more than twelve (12) feet 
apart on centers. The lower end of the tube shall 
be horizontal for a length of three (3) feet for any 
building except a hospital and for a length of six 
(6) feet for any hospital. Such horizontal section 
shall be connected to the main inclined section by 
an elbow to provide easy transition. A horizontal 
metal bar of three-fourths (%) inch diameter shall 
be located near the top of the entrance for users 
to grasp with hands when entering chute. An in- 
closed spiral chute shall consist of a spiral slide 
within a tubular shell of not less than five (5) feet 
inside diameter. The pitch or rate of vertical descent 
of the slide shall be not more than seven (7) feet 
nor less than five (5) feet in one (1) full turn of 
ihtee hundred sixty (360) degrees. In a metal shell, 
the unper three (3) stories shall be not lighter than 
No. 16 U. S. standard gauge, and the next two (2) 
stories not lighter than No. 14 U. S. standard gauge 
and so increased two (2) gauge numbers for each 
additional two (2) stories or part thereof, unless the 
chute is suDPorted at successive floors; but the base 
section shall be in any case not lighter than No. 12 
U. S. standard gauge; and the base section of any 
chute more than fifty (50) feet in height shall be 
not lighter than three-sixteenths (3/16) inch thick 
steel plate. Every exterior chute shall be anchored 
to the building, and shall be reinforced and braced 
to resist wind pressure as required by this ordi-

nance. Every chute shall have angle rings at joints 
and every chute more than fifty (50) feet high shall 
have vertical angles not less than three (3) in num- 
ber. 

d) Inclosures. Every chute and passage thereto 
located within a building shall be inclosed with fire- 
resistive construction of the value required for the 
stairway which it displaces. There shall be no open- 
ing into such inclosure except for entrance to, and 
exit from the chute. Access to an exterior spiral 
chute at any point shall be through a fully inclosed 
passage between the entrance doorway and the 
tubular shell. Such inclosure shall be of non-com- 
bustible material, and if of metal, it shall be not less 
than No. 16 U. S. standard gauge. 

e) Live Load. Every part of fire-escape chutes 
shall be designed to support a live load of not less 
than one hundred (100) pounds per square foot of 
slide surfaces projected horizontally. 

f ) Openings. Every entrance doorway to a chute, 
either straight or spiral, shall have a clear width of 
at least thirty (30) inches and a clear height of at 
least six (6) feet six (6) inches, when such chute 
is entered by means of a platform between the en- 
trance door and chute. When the sliding surface of 
the chute is extended to the threshold of the en- 
trance door, the doorway shall have a clear width of 
not less than two (2) feet six (6) inches and a height 
of not less than three (3) feet six (6) inches for 
any building except a hospital and shall have a clear

vided with a self-closing door or doors arranged to 
open inward toward the chute on simple pressure 
from the building side, and having a fire-resistance 
not less than a forty-five (45) minute fire-resistive 
door. Such door or doors may be locked so as to 
prevent entry from the chute to the building; pro- 
vided however, that such lock cannot in any way 
interfere with entrance into the chute as required 
in this paragraph. Such a door, when opened, shall 
not project into the tubular shell of the spiral chute. 
Every exit doorway from a chute shall have a clear 
width of not less than the inside diameter of the 
chute, and a clear height of at least three (3) feet 
six (6) inches. Every exit door within the building 
shall be self-closing and arranged to open outward 
only, and shall not project over a sidewalk or other 
public space. Every such door shall open on a simple 
pressure from the inside, and shall not have any

than fourteen (14) inches on centers. Rungs shall 
be of square steel or wrought iron bars, of not less 
than one-half ( Vz ) inch size, set with corners up- 
ward and riveted to the side guards. The ladder 
shall be anchored to the wall of the building as re- 
quired for stairway fire-escape, except that anchors 
may be inserted in masonry or reinforced concrete 
to a depth of eight (8) inches. The brace for the 



anchors shall have a spread of at least twenty (20) 
inches, and shall extend into the wall not less than 
four (4) inches. No pipe or other hollow section 
shall be used in the construction of a ladder fire- 
escape. 

c) Extension and Counterbalances. The lowest 
portion of a ladder fire-escape extending to street 
level or ground level shall consist of a counter-bal- 
anced stair. Such a counter-balanced stair shall 
conform to the requirements for a counter-balanced 
stair of a stairway fire-escape, except that the width 
need not be greater than is required for the ladder 
fire-escape. 

Section 2. This ordinance shall take effect and 
be in force from and after its passage and approval. 



Authorization for Renewal of an Easement for Main- 
tenance of an Open Flume across Certain Private 
Property between the Hegewisch Sewage 
Pumping Station and the Calumet River. 

On motion of Alderman Terrell the City Council 
thereupon took up for consideration the report of the 
Committee on Health on an ordinance authorizing 
acceptance of a grant of an easement from the Chi- 
cago and Calumet River Railroad Company for main- 
tenance of an open flume across certain private prop- 
erty between the Hegewisch Sewage Pumping Station 
and the Calumet River, deferred and published June

party of the first part, and City of Chicago, a mu- 
nicipal corporation of the State of Illinois herein- 
inafter for convenience also referred to as "City"), 
as party of the second part, witnesseth: 

Whereas, Heretofore on to wit, December 28, 
1908, Railroad granted to the City the right and 
privilege to construct an open wood flume two feet 
by three feet in dimensions upon and across the 
north thirty-three feet of the northwest quarter of 
the southwest quarter of Section 31, Township 37 
North, Range 15 East of the Third Principal Merid- 
ian, upon certain terms and conditions, which said 
grant was filed for record in the Office of the Re- 
corder of Deeds of Cook County, Illinois, on Jan- 
uary 11, 1909, as Document 4312912, and, 
heretofore on to wit, December 22, 1908, one Mary 
R. Cox granted to the City the right and privilege 
to construct an open wood flume two feet by three 
feet in dimensions upon and across a certain por-

in said grant more particularly described, upon cer- 
tain terms and conditions, which said grant was 
filed for record in the Office of the Recorder of 
Deeds of Cook County, Illinois, on December 23, 
1908, as Document No. 4305735; 

Whereas, Shortly thereafter Railroad acquired 
title to said portion of said northeast quarter of said 
southwest quarter from said Mary R. Cox, subject 
to said grant; 

Whereas, Shortly thereafter City constructed 
and has ever since maintained and operated said 
open wood flume upon and across said lands and

south of and parallel with the north line of the 
southwest quarter of said Section 31; 

Whereas, Both of said grants provided that "the 
rights hereby granted shall extend for a period of 
twenty (20) years from the date hereof" and, ac- 
cordingly, the right of the City to have and main- 
tain said open wood flume upon and across said 
lands and premises has long since expired; and 

Whereas, City is desirous of maintaining said 
open wood flume for use as a sewer and Railroad 
is willing to have City continue so to do, all upon 
and subject to the covenants and agreements here- 
inafter contained and set forth; 

Now, Therefore, In consideration of the premises, 
and of the further sum of One Dollar ($1.00), the 
receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged, the said 
Chicago and Calumet River Railroad Company does 
hereby give and grant to the City of Chicago, the 
right and privilege to have and maintain the afore-

said Section 31, upon and subject to the following 
terms and conditions: 

First: Said open wood flume shall be main- 
tained by the City in its present position. 

Second: The City shall have the right to enter 
upon said premises at all reasonable hours, to 
maintain, clean, repair and operate said open wood 
flume, but this grant shall not give the City the 
right to lay any other ditches or flumes or connec- 
tions in, along or upon the lands of the Railroad. 



Third: The City shall, so long as it shall con- 
tinue to use said open wood flume, maintain, clean 
and repair it and so operate it that it shall at all 
times be in a safe and sanitary condition; and the 
City hereby agrees to hold the Railroad free and 
harmless from all damages accruing to any and all 
other persons, including the State of Illinois and 
the County of Cook and the United States of Amer- 
ica, by reason of the existence, location or operation 
of said open wood flume. 

Fourth: The City hereby expressly recognizes 
and admits that the Railroad is the owner of said 
thirty-three foot strip and has reserved to itself 
the complete ownership, use and occupancy there- 
of, for all purposes not inconsistent with the privi- 
leges hereby granted, and the City hereby agrees 
that the Railroad shall have the right at all times 
and from time to time to build crossings and 
bridges over and across said open wood flume at 
any place along said thirty-three foot strip, and, in 
that connection, to replace any portion of said open 
wood flume with a pipe or conduit of equal or 
greater hydraulic capacity. 

Fifth: City agrees that it has not heretofore ac- 
quired in respect to said open wood flume, and will 
not acquire by this grant, any other rights or privi- 
leges not herein specifically granted, which have 
not terminated by lapse of time or otherwise. 

Sixth: All rights and privileges hereby granted 
shall cease and determine: 

(a) Upon the abandonment of said open wood 
flume by the City; 

(b) If said open wood flume becomes clogged 
or unsanitary and the City allows it so to remain 
for a period of ten days after written notice 
thereof shall have been given to the City by the 
Railroad; 

(c) Sixty days after notice in writing from the 
Railroad to the City that the Railroad desires to 
terminate this grant, provided that the Railroad 
shall not have the right to give such notice to the 
City prior to January 1, 1939; 

and upon the termination of this grant in any way 
or manner the City shall proceed forthwith to re- 
move said open wood flume from the property of 
the Railroad and shall continue with said removal 
until it has been fully completed as expeditiously 
as is reasonably possible; and upon removing said 
open wood flume the City shall flll in any holes or 
ditches left thereby to the level of the surrounding 
ground surface with good clean dirt, sand, gravel 
or cinders. In the event that the City should fail to 
remove said open wood flume and fill in any holes 
or ditches left thereby within ten days after it is 
required hereby so to do, the Railroad may remove 
said open wood flume or make said fllls or both, 
and the City shall, upon demand, reimburse Rail-

connection with said removal or filling, or both, 
plus an additional ten per centum in reimburse- 
ment for Railroad's overhead, plus Railroad's rea- 
sonable attorneys' fees, including reasonable attor-

Authorization to Secure a Federal Loan or Loans in 

the Amount of $3,000,000.00 to be Expended on 

W. P. A. Street Improvement Projects. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication: 

Office of the Mayor, 
Chicago, July 6, 1938. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The WPA program which has been 
formulated by the City and tentatively approved 
by the WPA calls for the employment upon City 
of Chicago projects of approximately 75,000 men 
during the six months' period ending December 
31, 1938. 

Accomplishment of this program will substan- 
tially decrease the burden of relief necessary to be 
furnished through the Chicago Relief Administra- 
tion. 

In order to accomplish this program it is neces- 
sary that the City procure the sum of $3,000,000.00 
to be devoted to the purchase of necessary paving 
materials and equipment and to pay for skilled. la- 
bor including the employment of 30 skilled asphalt 
gangs to be employed in completing the program. 
It is believed that a loan in the sum of $3,000,000.00 
will be made by the Reconstruction Finance Cor- 
poration to the City in order to accomplish this 
program. It is contemplated that this loan will be 
repaid by appropriation from the City Vehicle Tax 
Fund in the sum of $300,000.00 annually for a pe- 
riod of ten years beginning with the year 1939. 

There is transmitted herewith for your consider- 
ation an ordinance authorizing the Commissioner 
of Public Works of the City to secure a loan in the 
amount and upon the terms which I have described 
so that the WPA program of City of Chicago 
projects which has been formulated and agreed 
upon may be accomplished. 



Respectfully submitted.

Edward J. Kelly,

The following is said ordinance as passed: 
An Ordinance 

Whereas, The prosecution of useful and bene- 
ficial work in the City of Chicago is necessary in 
order to promote economic stability, encourage the 
employment of labor and reduce the obligation of 
providing for the relief of the unemployed, and 

Whereas, There are numerous existing street 
improvements in the City of Chicago requiring re- 
habilitation, resurfacing, repairing and improving 
which may be accomplished by securing a loan or 
loans from the United States Government, or some 
agency thereof; now, therefore. 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. The Commissioner of Public Works 
hereby is authorized to secure a loan or loans from 
the United States Government, or any agency there- 
of, in the amount of $3,000,000 to be expended on 
Works Progress Administration projects for the re- 
habilitation, resurfacing, repairing and improving 
of existing street improvements within the corpo- 
rate limits of the City of Chicago, such loan or 
loans to be repaid at the rate of $300,000 per year 
beginning in the year 1939 solely out of the reve- 
nues of the city derived from vehicle taxes. 

Section 2. The United States Government, or 
the agency thereof making such loan or loans, is 
authorized to deposit the amount loaned as a special 
fund in any national bank in the City of Chicago 
in the name of the City of Chicago subject to with- 
drawal for expenditures in connection with Works 
Progress Administration projects lor the rehabili- 
tation, resurfacing, repairing and improving of 
existing street improvements within the corporate 
limits of the City of Chicago under the direction of 
the Commissioner of Streets and Electricity. 

Section 3. Upon the consummation of such loan 
or loans the City Council shall be obligated to ap- 
propriate annually beginning in the year 1939 the 
sum of $300,000 from the vehicle tax fund for the 
repayment of such loan or loans. 

Section 4. This ordinance shall be in full force 
and effect from and after its passage. 



Proposed Modernization of the Regulations Regulating 
the Storage of Class I Flammable Liquids. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was referred to the 
Committee on Health: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, July 6, 1938.]" 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — This communication is prompted 
by the results of a joint investigation by the Fire 
Department and the Law Department of the con- 
ditions prevailing in Chicago with regard to the 
storage of flammable liquids designated in our city 
ordinances as Class I. Samples of Class I flammable 
liquids are gasoline, naphtha, benzole, liquified 
petroleum gas, acetone, ether, carbon bisulphide, 
collodion and hydro-carbon. 

It is the opinion of these two departments, an 
opinion in which I earnestly concur, that steps 
should be taken immediately by the City of Chi- 



July 6, 1938

cago to modernize our regulations concerning the 
storage of such substances. I am advised that a 
number of recent accidents, such as fires and ex- 
plosions, have resulted because storage facilities are 
inadequate and lack safeguards consonant with 
present-day standards. It seems clear that certain 
explosions in sewers that have occurred from time 
to time during recent years have been a result of 
leakage of flammable liquids. 

Our Fire Department has been exerting every 
effort to reduce the hazard in connection with the 
storage of such liquids. However, it seems apparent 
that more rigid and also modern regulations ought 
to be adopted in ordinance form if these hazards 
are to be minimized to the lowest point. The pres- 
ent regulations were adopted so long ago as 1912. 
Since then the amount of such liquids being stored 
within the limits of the City of Chicago has in- 
creased enormously. Moreover, scientific and en- 
gineering knowledge for safer handling of such 
liquids has increased, but because our ordinances 
have not been changed, our city has not taken 
proper advantage of the latest methods for proper 
storage of flammable liquids. 

It seems clear to me that it is vital for the safety 
of our citizens that immediate steps be taken to 
improve our ordinances in this regard. 

Because this is a matter which involves the safe- 
ty of the lives and property of our citizens, I wish 
to emphasize the point of urgency and I am re- 
questing that you submit this matter to the proper 
committee with instruction that the committee ob- 
tain the advice of technicians and other experts to 
the end that effective regulation may be obtained 
as soon as possible. 



Very truly yours.
